Previously the 'Special Interest Group', the new Advisory Board will provide advice to Council on strategic planning, promotion and accessibility of the Gallery and arts as an integral part of Devonport's cultural life. This is a particularly exciting chapter for the Gallery with its relocation taking place in 2018.

Residents, business owners and workers interested in actively contributing to city life in a new way are invited to nominate for a position on the Advisory Board. All positions are for a two-year tenure.

Applications close Friday, 14 July.

YOUNG WRITERS IN THE CITY

You can now read the complete story 'From Where I Stood' by Young Writers in the City writer, Jane Beeke on the Devonport Regional Gallery's blog. The six part series was written as part of Jane's writing residency at the Bass Strait Maritime Centre over the summer, and in conjunction with Tidal Festival (23–29 January 2017).

The intriguing story follows a series of characters linked to the missing vessel J.L.Griffiths, "the fastest ship ever to sail to Melbourne".

Each selected a work that spoke to them, and then presented their thoughts, findings and insights about the works at our International Museums Day event.
