PROFESSIONS WITHIN THE PUBLIC GALLERY SECTOR
We are pleased to launch a new series which foregrounds eight roles within the public gallery sector and the people who occupy these specialist positions. In this first edition, we look at the role of Gallery Director and speak with Jason Smith, Director & CEO at Geelong Gallery and Jessica Bridgfoot, Director at Bendigo Art Gallery. Learn about their career pathways, the challenges inherent in their roles, and what they identify as the key issues facing the public gallery sector.
The Public Galleries Association of Victoria (PGAV) acknowledges the Wurundjeri Woi-Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation as the Traditional Owners of the lands where our office is located, and all Traditional Owners of country throughout Victoria and Australia. We recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples enduring traditions and continuing creative cultures. We pay our respect to Elders past, present and emerging.
