Board and Committee Nominations Open

Be part of Penrith’s Creative Heart

Deadline 15 August 2021

PP&VA is seeking nominations from interested Greater Western Sydney-based community members to its Board of Directors and three Community Advisory Committees (Education Committee, Performing Arts Committee and Visual Arts Committee).

These are volunteer positions.

A public company limited by guarantee and a controlled entity of Penrith City Council, Penrith Performing & Visual Arts is a producer, curator, presenter and a leader in industry-led arts education experiences in the region.

PP&VA is looking to diversify its Board and Committee representation to best reflect the community we serve. We are particularly interested in nominations from those with a passion for arts and cultural growth in this region including:

· Local business representatives
· Artists and creatives
· Representatives of Joan and Gallery community hiring groups
· Those from a diverse cultural background
· Young people (aged between 18 and 40)


A Board Director is appointed for a four (4) year term. Directors are eligible to re-nominate for a future term. This year, we have two midterm vacancies for two (2) years, and three for the full four-year term.

All Directors are appointed by Penrith City Council following recommendations of the Board.

New terms commence following the Annual General Meeting on Tuesday 26 October 2021.
