Bankstown Arts Centre has announced the appointment of Rachael Kiang as the new Arts Director.

With significant experience in cultural leadership spanning public art, galleries, performing arts and major events, Ms Kiang is poised to bring fresh perspectives and innovative ideas to the vibrant arts community in Canterbury-Bankstown.

“I am honoured and thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the City of Canterbury Bankstown’s collective of artists, creatives and arts groups, shaping Bankstown Arts Centre into a destination for cutting-edge, socially engaged contemporary visual art and multidisciplinary hybrid arts.” Ms Kiang said.

As the new Arts Director, Ms Kiang will be responsible for overseeing the strategic direction and artistic programming of Bankstown Arts Centre, reinforcing its position as a leading cultural institution.

Her proven track record in curatorial excellence and community engagement, make her the ideal choice to further enhance the Centre’s offerings. Her commitment to promoting local talent and nurturing emerging artists will further enrich the Centre’s programming.

“I very much look forward to building upon the amazing work of my predecessor and deepening Bankstown Arts Centre’s engagement with Western Sydney and the broader arts sector,” she said.

Before her recent appointment, Ms Kiang was the Interim CEO at 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art. She was previously Manager and Curator of Gallery Lane Cove + Creative Studies; Program Manager and Producer of the inaugural Big Anxiety Festival (Australia's largest mental health festival of arts, science and people); and Program Manager of the National Institute for Experimental Arts UNSW.

Ms Kiang brings a wealth of experience to Bankstown Arts Centre and envisions the Centre as a dynamic hub that celebrates the rich cultural diversity of the community and embraces multidisciplinary arts forms, fostering creativity and artistic expression for all.
