Auckland Museum is a much-loved arts and culture organisation at the centre of Auckland’s identity, committed to developing and sharing with communities engaging content through its galleries, exhibition, events and educational programmes.

Auckland Museum is proud to have a strong Pacific dimension, and is working to build on this to ensure our Pacific collections and communities are embraced and celebrated.

Auckland Museum’s Pacific Advisory Group (PAG) assists the Museum in developing a stronger Pacific dimension. The aim is to better reflect Auckland’s rich, contemporary Pacific culture and improve the under-representation of visitation by Pacific people and increase their engagement with Museum programmes.

Alongside establishing the Pacific Advisory Group the Museum has developed a strategy document titled Teu le Vā, which outlines what is meant by ‘creating a strong Pacific dimension’.

The Pacific Advisory Group is now open for expressions of interest for new members. Applicants must have a good knowledge of their communities, an understanding and support of Pacific cultures, experience with governance or leadership and advisory roles, and an understanding of the Museums direction which is envisioned in the 20 year Future Museum master-plan.

The group meets bi-monthly, and members must be committed to attend at least 70% of these meetings.

Closing Date for Expressions of Interest: 22 July, 2018

You must be eligible to currently work in New Zealand to apply for this advisory position, as this is a paid position.

This is a great opportunity for someone looking to be part of a fabulous New Zealand organisation committed to telling our national and Auckland stories and reflecting our unique place in the Pacific.
