OPEN CALL: CHAIR, LIQUID ARCHITECTURE BOARD
The Liquid Architecture Board is inviting a new Chair: to listen forward, sound out, and evolve our organisation together to meet the future needs of artists, stakeholders, and communities. At the beginning of a new cycle, the upcoming period involves the search for a new Artistic Director, and the development of a refreshed Strategic Plan, including greater responsiveness to First Peoples sovereignty in its governance structure.
Active since 2000, Liquid Architecture is a leading Australian organisation for artists working with sound and listening. Liquid Architecture is based on Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung Country, at the Collingwood Yards contemporary art precinct. Our program sits at the intersection of contemporary art and experimental music, expressed through a range of presentation, publishing, research and commissioning activities.
Our commitment is to experimentation, not as a genre, but as an ethic shared across cultures, artforms, and contexts; a modality that reflects the intersectionality of our community (artists, audiences, stakeholders) and their experiences, needs, and desires.
We are looking for an experienced and dynamic cultural leader with a commitment to experimental practice, who can drive our enthusiastic board in taking Liquid Architecture into its next phase. Please note that all Liquid Architecture Board roles are voluntary, in keeping with industry practice and our community values.
