Artistic and Cultural Advisory Group

Artistic and Cultural Advisory Group

The purpose of the Artistic and Cultural Advisory Group is to:

  • Support Nexus Arts in the pursuit of its vision and mission
  • Provide comment on the breadth and diversity of representation of culturally diverse and First Nations communities in the organisation’s activity
  • Provide input, advocacy and specialised knowledge to guide the organisation’s aims to promote, support and develop culturally diverse and intercultural artistic practice.

 

The Group’s objectives and responsibilities are to:

  • Strengthen Nexus Arts’ engagement with artists, audiences and community, and its local and national relevance
  • Monitor community engagement with Nexus Arts
  • Support and develop interest in the organisation
  • Provide independent advice and review of Nexus Arts’ implementation of relevant programming, through biannual meetings
  • Give feedback on the organisation’s activities and how they are supporting its mission
  • Represent the interests of the local and wider arts community
  • Strengthen advocacy for the organisation

 

In 2021, 7 members were appointed for a 2-year term. In 2022, Group members Zhao Liang and Yusuf Hayat joined the Nexus Arts staff team, and therefore stood down from the Group.
