The Performance Arcade is an annual exhibition and programme of events located on Wellington Waterfront.  Recognised as an important platform for live art, the Arcade has had ten presentations over the past nine years. Hybrid gallery/stage architecture is made from an assembly of shipping containers to create a series of spaces for installation, performance art, sonic art, interactive media, video-art, forums, theatre, dance, and live music.

Opening onto the bustling life of Wellington Waterfront, these sites of encounter engage the public in contemporary art and performance practices outside the familiar constraints of gallery or theatre spaces, visited by 60-90,000 people each year.

We are seeking a Producer who thinks on their feet and is able to work quickly and efficiently in our fast-paced festival environment. We would like someone who can commit to the role and offer insight and perspective to what we want to achieve.
