Creative director wanted for Alastair Swayn exhibition

The Swayn Gallery of Australian Design is inviting expressions of interest (EOI) for the creative director for the inaugural showcase Light Colour and Humanity: The Legacy of Alastair Swayn.

Alastair Swayn was a Canberran architect who was dedicated to furthering the direction and impact of architecture and design across Australia.

Swayn was instrumental in establishing the Canberra’s Gallery of Australian Design as a founding sponsor and board member. The gallery was renamed the Swayn Gallery of Australian Design in honour of his contribution.

The inaugural showcase will launch in 2023 and will take many forms and scales, from exhibitions, events, discourse to installations.

The showcase is intended to coincide with the 2023 Enlighten Canberra art and cultural festival scheduled for March 2023, with dates to be announced late 2022.

The gallery has specified the creative director will be a person with deep interest in design and a talent for project management. They will run the project from concept to delivery, and be responsible for the work of the nominated team members.

The EOI submissions will be presented as a document of no more than five pages and will include a summary of the creative concept for the show, as well as the candidate’s relevant qualifications and experience. The creative director will also nominate design team members and include a preliminary estimate for the capital budget for the creative concept.

Submissions close at 11:59pm on 4 August and can be made here.
