Australia Council - Arts Governance Program

An opportunity for the leaders of arts organisations to enhance their governance practices through a program tailored specifically to the arts.

How does your board prepare for the future? How does it know it's doing a good job and what is its role in monitoring the organisation's artistic health? These are some of the questions that will be tackled in the Australia Council Arts Governance Program External Link presented nationally in partnership with the Institute of Community Directors Australia.

Full day Workshop

The program consists of a full day workshop External Link for small-medium arts organisations, and a webinar External Link series. All participants receive a complimentary two-year membership to the Institute of Community Directors Australia.

A workshop will be held in Canberra on 1 June 2017, and places are limited. Registrations External Link are now open.
