The Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA) is seeking expressions of interest from individuals, practices, schools of landscape architecture, or collaborative teams to take on the role of Creative Director for the 2023 Festival of Landscape Architecture. The successful Creative Director/s submission will be innovative and inspiring.
The 2023 Festival of Landscape Architecture will be held in Adelaide, South Australia from 19 - 22 October 2023.
The Festival of Landscape Architecture provides an opportunity for AILA to facilitate valuable exchanges between local and international landscape architects; between speakers and delegates; between practice, industry, education and authorities.
We are seeking Creative Director/s to develop the content and theme for this national event. The Festival has been designed to engage with landscape architects, allied professionals, students, universities, government, the community and public. The events involved in the Festival will be wide-ranging. Core events include a welcome function, the National Landscape Architecture Awards Presentation, tours and a conference. The program may also include additional elements such as exhibitions, competitions, major public activations, student program and dedicated fringe events.
The scope of the Creative Director role and responsibilities is primarily focused on the themes, content and style of the Festival and in particular the content of the Conference, with the formal and operational aspects (including fringe events) being the primary focus of the AILA team.
Expression of interest submissions must be received by 5pm AEST Monday 7 November 2022.
