Rachael Coghlan, CEO and artistic director of Craft ACT, is moving on, after accepting a position at Parliament House, leading "cultural strategy and experience".
Ms Coghlan said she had cherished her role at Craft ACT for the past five years and would take what she had learned into her new role, which included celebrating architecture, art, craft and design within Parliament House as well as developing engaging experiences and showcasing local makers, designers and craftspeople.
"The position builds upon my role at Craft ACT - I will continue to be an advocate for and collaborator with contemporary craft practitioners and designers. Like all of you, I will remain part of the incredible Craft ACT story," she said.
"It's a good time to leave: Craft ACT today enjoys a high performing and growing team, a supportive board, an engaged membership, financial security (through Australia Council four-year funding, artsACT/ACT government support, and amazing network of sponsors) and a beautiful and respected artistic program reaching record audiences."
The Craft ACT CEO and artistic director position has been advertised for an immediate start.
