After close to three years at Kultour and leading significant organisational change, Kultour CEO Magdalena Moreno will depart February 1 to take up a senior position at the Consejo Nacional de la Cultura y las Artes (National Council for Arts and Culture, Government of Chile).
Magdalena joined Kultour in 2009 and during her term has successfully steered a re-imagining of Kultour, transitioning the organisation through substantial structural, governance, and operational changes, into a thriving and robust national advocacy body, dedicated to ensuring that the Arts in Australia reflect our cultural diversity.
With the unanimous support of the board Magdalena has initiated and led national discourse on transformational change for a more open, diverse and inclusive arts community and been an active voice on the importance of diversity in the National Cultural Policy.
She has not only brought this important debate to a national platform but has sought to link Kultour and Australia’s diversity to the international debate on diversity of expression and developed strong links with the Arts Council England, Scanlon Foundation, Australia Council for the Arts, and DFAT amongst many others.
Magdalena has delivered outstanding opportunities and outcomes to the Arts in Australia and brought a profound generosity, intellectual and strategic capacity, and diligence to the role of Kultour CEO. She has been an exceptional performer in demanding times.
Whilst the Kultour Board of Directors and Staff will greatly miss her energy, passion, and advocacy, we are equally excited by the opportunity that lies ahead for her in her future role in the arts in Chile and wish her all the best.
Caroline Stacey, Kultour Chair
