The role is to commence the journey, to realise the Creative City vision for the Ballarat community. Success for the right candidate will be evident by the way the community has leveraged this position to grow its creative industries and infrastructure, enhance local participation in creative opportunities, grow its cultural visitor economy and address artist development, social inclusion and economic growth.
