Overview

The Board of Contemporary Art Tasmania is comprised of eight Directors elected by the Contemporary Art Tasmania membership and has provision for up to three Appointed Directors, co-opted for their expertise. The Board oversees the management and finances of the company and meets bi-monthly. Contemporary Art Tasmania also offers a Board mentorship each year. The Board is assisted by Sub-Committees for Exhibitions, Marketing and Touring.

The organisation is run by a small team, comprising a Director and part-time staff. All employees are active participants in the local arts community, many of them as artists.
