Mekong Cultural Hub: Program Manager, Networks & Alliances (Remote / Cambodia / Taiwan)

Mekong Cultural Hub logo - name spelled with letters formed by rounded shapes, lines, a fingerprint. Very chill, bright, beach vibe.

Mekong Cultural Hub (MCH) is a non-profit organisation, whose mission is to empower diverse cultural practitioners to bring to life their visions for a sustainable and inclusive Asia. They initiate projects and work on collaborations all around Asia, particularly focusing on Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam. Since 2018, they have connected more than 200 artists and other cultural workers from the region for professional exchange, co-creation and collaboration.

MCH is now recruiting a new position of Program Manager, responsible for leading programs and projects related to Networks & Alliances. The Program Manager will work alongside existing Program Manager, Jennifer Lee, who leads on programs and projects related to Fellowships & Training, and Frances Rudgard, Director of MCH.

MCH are creating this new role because a core aspect of MCH’s strategic plan for 2023-2027 is to further develop the MCH network, by expanding its ‘hub and spoke’ model. They are doing this by establishing at least one formal ‘hub partnership’ in each of their six focus countries. The hub partners are local organisations or networks who can work, with MCH and with each other, to share, deliver and create opportunities for cultural practitioners looking to connect and collaborate across Asia, and in doing so build a regional community of practitioners working across art, culture and society.

In the short to medium term, MCH is providing structure, resources and facilitation to support the hubs network to develop. The Program Manager, Network & Alliances will be the lead MCH staff member growing and coordinating this network.

The position is open to candidates from and based in South-East Asia and Taiwan. If the selected candidate is based in either Phnom Penh or Taipei they may work at a Living Arts International office. Otherwise, they will work remotely, with approximately 1-2 trips within South-East Asia and Taiwan per year.

Starting salary is 1800 USD per month, based on LAI’s salary scale indexed to Phnom Penh, Cambodia. The salary may be negotiated based on location of the selected candidate.
