Activity Round-up

CIRCUIT is about about to begin a major redesign of our website. How do you think the CIRCUIT website could be improved? What works? What could be better and what's missing? Whether you're an artist, student, educator, curator or simply an art lover, we'd love to know your thoughts! We invite you to take this 12 question survey.

CIRCUIT are looking for board members who are passionate about supporting contemporary art. You will join a professional cohort of artists, curators and managers working towards the needs of the organisation and the community CIRCUIT supports. More information here.
