As the year ends a new era begins for Ten Days on the Island.
There are several new members for our leadership team, headed by renowned economist, Saul Eslake, as Chairman of the Board.
He is joined by four new Directors - Roz MacAllan, Gillian Miles, David Palmer and Travis Tiddy - who bring a wealth of expertise and experience in the arts, tourism, marketing, festivals, governance and finance.
As Tasmania’s only statewide multi-arts company, we’re delighted that we now have great representation from all parts of Tasmania in the group that governs and directs Ten Days.
Ten Days’ wonderful legacy is represented and extended through the continuing Board membership of Jacqui Allen, Scott Dawkins, Noel Frankham, and Jenny-Ellen Kennedy.
I am pleased to join Artistic Director, David Malacari, as the senior executive team for Ten Days in the role of CEO. Having grown up in Tassie, I am thrilled to be back home after an extensive career in arts management in Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane and Melbourne, most recently as the national CEO of the Australia Business Arts Foundation, where I spent 10 years promoting business and donor support for the arts across Australia.
I look forward to the opportunity to meet with you as we plan our exciting program for March 2017 or maybe at The Spiegeltent Hobart in March 2016 for a performance of LIMBO!
