Supriiiiiiise! My 4ZZZ Community Engagement Coordinator role is up for grabs!
After a glorious sprint of upholding Zed's legacy of inclusiveness and creating space for marginalised voices (and making so many amazing kindred spirit friends along the way), I'm going off to fulfil my childhood dream as a composer for a La Boite and give some love to my Obscure Orchestra project!
So, as I burst into a million tears in leaving this beautiful place, I hereby pass the torch to anyone who's keen to take up this part-time (3 days) Community Engagement mantle in this very special place!
If you're the kind of person that cares about grassroots DIY culture, building safe and inclusive spaces where vollies can thrive, connecting with diverse and intersectional communities, have a knack for social media and comms, and want a hand in shaping the music culture of this city, this is that job!
Nuts and bolts: it's part-time 3 days a week, you'll have strong networks in Meanjin communities, impeccable communication skills and a keen understanding of how to connect a diverse range of people to 4ZZZ.

OMG 10 DAYS TIME!
Cooler (read: younger) people than me say this is probably the best lineup of bands we've ever had!!!
And I'm extra happy about this because this show is ALL AGES and FREE so younger people than me should think this is the best lineup we've ever had!!!!
