In 2023 the Powerhouse, one of Australia’s oldest and most important cultural institutions, continues the delivery of its renewal program across its five platforms, Powerhouse Parramatta, Powerhouse Ultimo, Powerhouse Castle Hill, Sydney Observatory and Powerhouse Digital, our space to tell stories and provide new levels of access to the Powerhouse Collection of over 500,000 objects.

The Program Producer (Creative Industries) provides support and coordination of public programming, co-production, festival, and partnerships programming. Primarily the role is responsible for working collaboratively with teams from across the Museum, advocating for, developing, and delivering programs in collaboration with NSW creative industries, including the creative residents of the museum.
