Social Impact Producer

ILBIJERRI Theatre Company


Do you love theatre? Are you passionate about using the arts for social and Community good?

ILBIJERRI’s Social Impact theatre projects – created in partnership with DHHS for 16 years - are designed to engage Community in positive social change via performance using public health messaging. Afterall, we've been using bold, black storytelling as a key education tool for 70,000+ years. Why stop now?

These projects tour many venues including prisons, youth justice centres and health hubs, plus regional and remote Communities, to reach everyone including people who might not usually attend theatre spaces. The Social Impact Producer will have primary responsibility for supporting these projects.

This unique ILBIJERRI Social Impact program has produced works like CHOPPED LIVER, NORTH WEST OF NOWHERE, SCAR TREES, VIRAL and more, made by Community, for Community. You most likely will not heard of these works but this is the work that is most important to ILBIJERRI. We are about giving voice to, empowering and improving the wellbeing of our people – the First Peoples of this land – and theatre is our weapon of choice.

As the Social Impact Producer, you get to co-ordinate and work with a wide range of health and community organisations as well as the artists themselves.

We are currently seeking the passion and expertise of a special theatre producer to take it forward.
