Firstdraft is a national artist-led organisation dedicated to creating a professional context for the exploration of new ideas in contemporary arts practice and supporting emerging artists, curators and practices. We believe that in order to sustain a cultural ecology, we must provide a dynamic and energetic infrastructure that positions artists firmly at its centre. The Firstdraft Board of Directors is made up of a diverse range of artists, writers, curators and arts administrators, whose skills and knowledge are key to realising the success of its vision.
The Firstdraft Board consists of eight volunteer Directors each serving a two-year tenure. Each year, Firstdraft seeks and selects four people to join the Directorate. As a Firstdraft Director, you become an ambassador for one of Australia’s longest-running artist-led organisation and a key stakeholder within the emerging arts community, while gaining hands-on experience in all aspects of arts management, maintenance and development.
