Job description

About Us

Think+DO Tank Foundation collaborates with low-income and marginalised, urban communities in NSW, focusing on culturally and linguistically diverse women and children. Together, we develop a shared way of doing things, designing projects that have a demonstrated and lasting impact.

Our evidence-based, replicable approaches improve social cohesion; reduce isolation; strengthen community capacity; and foster equity. By using the arts, imagination and creativity to approach communities we shift the realms of possibility while we simultaneously address the pragmatic challenges of disadvantage that stand in the way of change.

Art asks us to examine our humanity, to amplify the threads that connect us and diminish those that divide us through geography, language and politics. Art starts conversations, holds and celebrates diverse points of view and asks each of us to imagine, and to create a world that does not yet exist. How can we create change if we don’t have the imagination to design a different world for ourselves?

The Think+DO Tank Foundation amplifies the stories of people and their places, in their own languages and in English. We explore how arts-based approaches can shift systems that reinforce poverty. By creating space for artistic self-expression in the languages spoken in the communities around us each of us can take an equal place in making new Australian stories and imagining new possibilities, together.

This role:

  • strengthens engagement and participation in; and support for our work;
  • maintains and develops systems for high quality and targeted communications;
  • grows self-generated revenues by winning market share and creating new markets; and
  • increases the recognition of Think+DO Tank Foundation as a thought leader.
