AX, the Arts and Culture Centre of Sussex, is seeking a Ceramics Centre Coordinator to help manage our ceramics centre, coordinate ceramics and other art and fine craft workshops for the public, maintain inventory and studio equipment, fire kilns, and coordinate our AX Evolution Program: Emerging Ceramics Artists. 

Ax Arts and Culture Centre of Sussex

This is a permanent position for 30 hours/week, with health benefits, paid vacation, and an hourly range between $16.83 to $26.44 per hour, depending on qualifications.

As the successful applicant, you will have access to an office and studio in a new, fully-equipped ceramics centre. You will coordinate mentorship opportunities for artists who participate in the AX Evolution Program, offering you important networking opportunities with experienced ceramists. You will have access to kilns and a wheel as well as other professional equipment. Because the position is only 30 hours per week, you’ll have time to pursue other professional goals while earning a reliable income, and you’ll coordinate AX’s ceramics arts and workshop programming, with opportunities to earn additional income as a ceramics instructor.
