The committee is greeting the end of 2019 with renewed enthusiasm, having identified a preferred site for the Art Museum building, gained the support of Regional Development Australia Adelaide Hill, Fleurieu and Kangaroo Island, and many island organisations, and advanced our thinking about how our Art Museum might look and operate.
Most members of the committee were fortunate to attend the Australian Museums and Galleries Association Conference in Alice Springs in May 2019. Please have a look at their report: AMKI AMaGA report_May2019conference Alice Springs (1)
The Art Museum of Kangaroo Island Establishment Association has now completed drafts for its strategic plan and a preliminary feasibility study for building a regional gallery on Kangaroo Island. If you would like to see these documents and comment on them, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll send the documents to you. Comments close on Tuesday 20 November 2018.
The association is looking for new volunteer committee members enthusiastic about the prospect of a regional gallery to support the art community on the island.
Between them, the two new members would have expertise in the areas of finance, governance, risk management, entrepreneurship, fundraising and legal matters.
One of them would be expected to become the association’s treasurer, a position that would be supported by a contract bookkeeper.
Do you have some or all of the required skills and would like to join a positive and active committee for this exciting project?
If so, please send a short application explaining why you would like to be on the committee, the skills you would bring to the organisation and a brief CV of relevant experience (2 pages in total).
Applicants need not necessarily live on Kangaroo Island. For the right person, we will organise communications (phone or video) to the mainland for meetings and possibly travel when necessary.
Please send to email@example.com by Friday 25 May 2018, or phone Kathie Stove on 0417 086 870 for more information.
[T]he Board commends you and your committee for your strategic approach and your early recognition of the importance of good structure and governance. We wish you well in these first stages and hope that, in due course, KIIBA can play its part to help your project to fruition.
Tony Nolan, Chairman, Kangaroo Island Industry and Brand Alliance
