Sound Summit – Call for Festival Co-Director - MusicNSW

Sound Summit is looking for a creative, energetic and highly organised individual to work with the current Festival Co-Director, Andrew Tuttle, alongside the Sound Summit Advisory Group, and MusicNSW on the 2010 festival.

Sound Summit exists to give musicians, producers, composers, promoters and fans the opportunity to interact, reflect and collaborate with each other, building communities around what they do and exploring the methodologies of why and how they do it. The festival explores the depths and reach of independent, innovative music in Australia.

Sound Summit is part of the This Is Not Art (TINA) festival that happens annually for five days over the October long weekend. It is held in Newcastle, NSW, along with Electrofringe, National Young Writers Festival, Critical Animals and Crack Theatre Festival.

The application deadline is COB Monday 8th February 2010.

Please note that this position is open to NSW residents only. While directors are paid a stipend for their work this fee is considered honorarium, and covers only a fraction of the time and energy that the successful applicant will spend on the festival.
