Program Manager

Geelong Performing Arts Centre is the preeminent performing arts centre – and a key cultural leader – for the Geelong region. GPAC hosts over 1,000 events per year to over 200,000 patrons, presented by GPAC itself, professional companies, local companies, and schools.
We are currently seeking to broaden and reposition our programming to address two most significant new opportunities affecting our future: the transformation of Geelong to a city with a significantly increased population and a stronger focus on service industries, education and tourism and a major change affecting our own organisation – the forthcoming redevelopment of GPAC and the Geelong Cultural precinct.
With consideration to audience development and growth, reporting to the General Manager, the GPAC Program Manager has responsibility for the creation, planning, development and implementation of GPAC’s own presentations, programming policy and strategy across three major venues: The Playhouse (820 seats) and Drama Theatre (320) and Costa Hall (1,500 seats) concert auditorium.
The Program Manager sources, reviews and recommends productions to the General Manager for inclusion in GPAC’s principle programs including our annual Alcoa Theatre Season, Musical Mornings, shaken + stirred @GPAC, Family Magic, and Education Programs. The Program Manager is also responsible for the development of Community partnerships.
Applicants should have both extensive professional experience in the performing arts and detailed knowledge of industry practice across the country.
