Open Call | Culture Advisory Panel to Dublin City Council Culture Company (Voluntary Position)

Application deadline: Thursday 11 October, 5pm.

The Board and executive of Dublin City Council Culture Company wishes to establish two advisory groups – a Culture Advisory Panel and a Heritage Advisory Panel.

Each Advisory Panel will create ideas and connections for the development of Dublin City Council Culture Company initiatives and programmes, forming a ‘brain trust’ for the organisation. It will work collaboratively with the team to support and guide ambitious, challenging, achievable, and meaningful cultural initiatives that harness the resources of all partners. The Advisory Panels will be asked to provide input into our ongoing cultural programmes and, in due course, its Strategic Plan development.

Dublin City Council Culture Company envisage that the panels might include previous project participants, artists, community group members, cultural sector professionals, academics and future partners to support and inform the activities of the Dublin City Council Culture Company.

For consideration for inclusion, please send us a letter, which outlines why you are interested in being part of the Advisory Panels for Dublin City Council Culture Company, indicating which panel you would like to be considered for. Please include a short CV or note (no more than two pages) about yourself.

  • To identify opportunities while out in their own community or field of expertise that could be of potential relevance for the Dublin City Council Culture Company and its activities.
  • To act as an ambassador for Dublin City Council Culture Company and its initiatives and cultivate new relationships for Dublin City Council Culture Company where appropriate.
  • To provide strategic advice on how to most effectively support the delivery of the initiatives of Dublin City Council Culture Company.
