The Executive Director (ED) and Artistic Director (AD) are new leadership positions, created to jointly lead FCAC and share responsibility for FCAC achieving organisational objectives. Each will have lead accountabilities within the scope of their role, supported by a strong consensus decision making framework between both positions.

The Executive Director (ED) is responsible for leading the development and implementation of FCAC’s business, operations, governance and strategy including the management of core funding relationships.

  • Contribute to the sustainability, legacy and success of Australia’s longest running and leading community-engaged, contemporary arts centre, where the focus is on supporting and presenting work that is representative of political, social and cultural commentary in a contemporary Australian context.
  • Collaborate with the Artistic Director (AD) to lead a dynamic and generative cultural facility that is locally, nationally and internationally significant.
  • Develop leading practices in not for profit management, corporate governance, and person-centric frameworks for all areas of the business.
  • Lead the regular review and ongoing delivery of FCAC’s vision, mission and activities within a new strategic planning context (2020-2024).
  • Ensure FCAC is able to realise its full potential by leading financial and operational excellence across all areas of the business.
  • Work with and develop a passionate, dedicated, respected and highly engaged team of people who work with communities and artists on a daily basis.
