We’re looking for the next generation of powerhouse producers.

Thanks to the incredible support of The Ian Potter Foundation, we are excited to announce our new Emerging Producer Xchange program.

The flagship program will support six emerging producers, over 2021-2022, to participate in paid 10-month internships, working with two nationally-recognised multidisciplinary arts organisations.

The host organisations are Metro Arts in Queensland and The Mill in South Australia.


In 2021, there are two positions available with Metro Arts:

  • Emerging Producer, Metro Arts (Queensland)
  • First Nation’s Emerging Producer, Metro Arts (Queensland)

Emerging Producers will be supported with mentorship, tailored workshops, networking opportunities and hands-on producing experience.

The program supports Metro Arts’ bold vision to continue our exciting journey of expansion, change, reconnection and reinvigoration. We are looking for the next generation of powerhouse producers to work with us to take contemporary art and artists into the future.

This is a career-defining opportunity. Find out more about what we’re looking for in the application guide below.
