Are you keen to help tell Ballarat’s Eureka story?

Here is your opportunity to combine your interest in the history of Eureka Stockade with your community development skills.
The City of Ballarat is currently seeking to appoint seven suitably experienced and passionate community members to volunteer their time to serve on a community-based consultative committee.

If you have professional and/or community engagement experience; knowledge of Australian colonial history, particularly the Eureka story; experience in curatorship, public space, storytelling using built form, or related fields; proven ability to work cooperatively in advisory groups or selection panels, then this is your opportunity to ensure the Eureka Centre maintains its position as a valuable cultural asset for the Ballarat community.

The Committee’s role will be to:
• Provide recommendations on how to increase the Ballarat community’s involvement with the Eureka Centre
• Provide recommendations on the development of strategies and projects to promote, commemorate and celebrate the Eureka story
• Support the work of Council in developing partnerships with the wider community and government sector to promote and develop the Eureka story
• Provide recommendations and advice to Council from a skillsbased perspective on:
- Identification of Eureka focused artefacts and displays; and
- Proposals for the ongoing development of the Eureka narrative for the Eureka Centre.

Applicants must include a copy of their CV and a cover letter highlighting how they may support the role of the committee, and address this to Jeff Johnson, Executive Manager Events and the Arts City of Ballarat PO Box 655, Ballarat VIC or send via email to jeffjohnson [at] ballarat.vic.gov.au
