Moreland Arts Board and strategy

Moreland Arts Board - Expressions of Interest Open

After an initial Expression of Interest process for the Moreland Arts Board in September, we are advertising a second Expression of Interest round to have members that fill some identified gaps in the new Board membership. In particular, practicing artists and/or artists from diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

Expressions of Interest should be emailed to Emanuela Savini, Unit Manager Arts and Culture, by 5 pm on Monday 20 November 2017.

The Moreland Arts Board has an overarching role to advance arts and culture in Moreland. It is the principal consultative body advising Council in furthering the cultural vitality of the city.

The board has both community and Councillor representatives.

See Moreland Arts Board for membership and further details.

Current Arts and Culture Strategy

Moreland’s current Arts and Culture Strategy guides Council in its commitment to strengthening the significant creative sector in Moreland and enhancing its standing as a destination for the arts. It articulates how Council aims to enhance the capacity of Moreland's creative sector to maintain and grow creative practice in the municipality and increase access to, and engagement of, community in Council's arts and culture program as both participants and audiences. Council will deliver this through three keys roles:

  • As a Producer where Council initiates, coordinates and delivers events, festivals, programs and exhibitions
  • As a Supporter where Council encourages a thriving creative sector through investment, facilitation and advocacy
  • As a Cultivator where Council employs various strategies to engage with community and build arts audiences across Moreland's community
