CALL OUT: Board members 





Apply to be on the
CONSTANCE Board.


We are looking for new people to join the CONSTANCE ARI Board!

CONSTANCE are a project-based, Artist-Run Initiative, led by a board of volunteers. We create paid opportunities for early-career arts practitioners to develop and present innovative and experimental work in varied settings. CONSTANCE provide artists with critical support, resources, and audience engagement to realise quality projects.

CONSTANCE projects are situated in, and responsive to, a wide variety of sites. Our projects have occupied historic buildings, vacant real estate, underground spaces, city streets, arts festivals and partnered within conventional galleries.

CONSTANCE’s site-less model minimises ongoing administrative expenses, allowing us to position artist remuneration and production quality as the priority of all our projects. This model allows CONSTANCE to be flexible and adaptive, pushing the organisation into ambitious new territory with every show.

The varied sites and responsive structures of CONSTANCE projects allow us to connect artists with diverse audiences, and continually broaden our engagement with communities.

You can apply for an executive role on the CONSTANCE board or just to be a general board member.
