Renowned local artist Nicole Voevodin-Cash has been appointed as the newest member of the Sunshine Coast Arts Advisory Board.

Earlier this year council called for expressions of interest from local arts practitioners to join the board and complement existing board members’ expertise in strategic planning, leadership, cultural policy and arts education.

Arts Portfolio Councillor Rick Baberowski was delighted to welcome Ms Voevodin-Cash to the board, saying she would bring additional arts practitioner experience.

“As we develop a 20-year arts plan for the region, placing the development of our arts community at the centre of the plan just makes sense,” Cr Baberowski said.

“To that end, it’s important to understand how our region’s practising artists can successfully earn a living while being based in our region.

“Nicole can provide more specific insights into that challenge to the board.

“Nicole will be an important voice for our creative industry practitioners, particularly as we finalise the arts plan and into the future, as we begin implementation.”

Nicole joins current board members Cr Baberowski, Collette Brennan, James Birrell, Jennifer Radbourne, Kathi Holt, Phil Smith and Tracey Vieira.

Ms Voevodin-Cash said she was looking forward to joining the Arts Board and bringing the practising artists’ perspective to the fore, conceptually and economically.

“I have always aspired for the development of a professional creative industry for the region,” Ms Voevodin-Cash said.

“The Sunshine Coast is a place where I altruistically live, where I call home and where I am an engaged practitioner in creative endeavours and enterprise so I am grateful for this opportunity to join the board and have input into the future of arts in the region.

“I will bring to the board my in-depth experiences as a maker, manager, designer and educator and provide the insight, clarity and vision of the working life of a practicing artist.”

The objectives of the Sunshine Coast Arts Advisory Board are to:

·           guide, promote and help build the identity of the Sunshine Coast as an arts destination for tourism and industry;

·           advocate the region’s advantages to secure new investment in arts and cultural infrastructure;

·           provide strategic advice to council in relation to arts and cultural facilities and infrastructure;

·           provide advice on strategic direction of wider cultural policy and strategy; and

·           provide opportunities to develop philanthropic activity in relation to the regional arts offer.

Ms Voevodin-Cash is a practising artist and sculptor with a background in arts education.

Her works crosses a wide range of disciplines producing permanent, temporary and ephemeral works for public and gallery spaces. She holds a Masters Degree in Visual Arts.

The draft arts plan is in development and is expected to be presented to council in June. It will then be released for broad community consultation, with a final plan to be presented to council in September.
