Context of the Role
After being significantly impacted by COVID-19, Ondru is rebuilding the organisation to develop and deliver pioneering and impactful local and international projects. We are exercising strong leadership, sustainable strategy, partnerships and a lot of hard work to transform Ondru into a thriving organisation again. Currently we are working on an Indigenous and an asylum seeker based projects based in Melbourne.
As part of the rebuilding phase, we are seeking a values-aligned, skilled and committed person to join us for a minimum of 6-months to re-establish a strong sense of positive culture and streamline the Human Resources functions and processes in an effective manner within the organisation. We have also launched a new website.
Ondru is a Melbourne-based non-profit humanitarian organisation working towards a more connected, compassionate and equitable society. We use art to provoke thought, evoke feeling and inspire change on issues of social justice. We make people think, feel and act through pioneering art projects that give voice to silent, unheard and misunderstood human stories that express the human condition. Our projects touch upon social justice issues and experiences such as identity and displacement, Indigenous experience, homelessness, health and well-being and war and violence. Projects are delivered locally and internationally using many forms of art including photography, theatre, dance, film, music, sculpture, poetry, painting, digital projections, mural and public art installation.
Our most known project is Voiceless Journeys, an art project that aims to celebrate cultural diversity and raise awareness about the journey, struggle, survival and achievements of people from diverse backgrounds – people who were impacted by displacement.
