Join our team to become a part of the Middle East’s leading international art fair and make a tangible difference in the cultural landscape of the Global South.

Role Mission

Reporting to the Executive Director and the Communications Manager, the successful candidate will create thoughtful, digital-first content to increase followers and engagement across all of the fair’s digital channels as well as to reach its target audiences.

  • Consult on the adoption of new digital marketing and media buying strategies, as well as analytics and listening tools.
  • Manage photography for the fair and its year-round programming.

Key Requirements

  • Keen interest and knowledge of the social and digital media landscape.
