Federation Council is currently seeking expressions of interest from members of the community to participate in the new term of the Federation Arts and Cultural Advisory Committee from July 2021 to June 2023.
Federation Council Mayor, Cr Patrick Bourke said the Federation Arts & Cultural Advisory Committee members provide Council with strategic advice and informed feedback about arts and cultural development in the Federation Council area.
“Council is looking for a range of community members who represent diverse creative forms and practices, and reflect the diversity of Federation’s population and geographic spread,” he said.
“Creative forms and practices include, but not limited to, all types of performance, singing, music, sound, dance, visual arts, public and street art, design, architecture, history, language, literature, photography, film and digital.”
Membership of the Committee will include a Councillor Representative, Council Officers and community and industry representatives who will meet at least four times annually.
Mayor Bourke said Council is also seeking expressions of interest from community members who are passionate about arts and culture, but just want to focus only on particular arts and cultural project, event or initiative.
“This will include volunteering at exhibitions or events, assist on street art projects, compile historical information, etc. The Federation Arts and Cultural Working Group is a sub-committee of the Federation Arts and Cultural Advisory Committee. This is open to all community members, who wish to be involved based around their interest in a project.”
The Federation Arts and Cultural Advisory Committee is an exciting opportunity for residents who are members of a Federation based or regional arts or community organisation, local working artist or people working or engaged in a cultural industry to shape priorities, direction and identify opportunities to grow and promote arts and culture across all of the Federation Council.
Candidates for appointment must lodge a written and signed Application Form with Federation Council which can be completed on Council’s website. Following the closure of nominations an assessment panel made up of the Chairperson and Council officers will be convened to decide on the selection of representatives to fill vacancies.
Nominations have been extended until Friday, 29 October 2021.
