These past few years have been a turbulent ride. For many in the arts sector, it’s been a period of considerable contemplation. However, it is an experience that has sharpened our instincts and accelerated our hunger for good storytelling, collective gathering and innovation.
For 2023, Silo has entered an extended period of artistic development. During this time, three new Aotearoa New Zealand works will be developed before we return to putting productions on stage this spring. This is an exciting time to join Silo, with the company preparing for our 2023/24 season, which will include the new works currently in development. This brief hiatus in our performance schedule will allow time for our new Executive Director to find their feet, before embarking upon producing exceptional and innovative local and international work that ignites imaginations and provokes conversations that matter. We want the successful candidate to bring fresh ideas, while still building and nurturing our diverse audiences. Now is an exciting, transitional time for Silo, and you have an opportunity to be at the forefront of delivering meaningful, transformative works to our stage.
We’re looking for an experienced executive who understands and appreciates te ao Māori and has confidence moving through many worlds — including our Moana Oceania and migrant communities. They need to have a strong vision for the future, an instinct for making considered decisions that push boundaries, and naturally embodies our values and our commitment to Te Tiriti.
Your responsibilities will include setting and managing the organisation’s strategic and operational goals (including the financial, legal, marketing, staffing and administrative aspects of the company) and working with the Artistic Director, Sophie Roberts, to identify programming opportunities, artistic partnerships, and new commissions.
