Congratulations to Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery Director Janet Carding on her acceptance of the position of Executive Director of the Sydney Harbour Federation Trust.

Ms Carding will step down as Director of TMAG in mid-August, after six successful years in the role.

During her time with TMAG, Ms Carding has overseen significant infrastructure upgrades to the museum’s facilities, commenced a substantial project to digitise TMAG’s collections, and stewarded the growth and rejuvenation of the museum’s public and cultural profile by championing exciting exhibitions, and attracting new partners and audiences.

Ms Carding leaves the museum as a vibrant, treasured Tasmanian institution and a must-visit contemporary attraction valued by locals and visitors alike.

I wish Janet all the very best in her new role and thank her for her extraordinary dedication and service over the past six years.

A new TMAG Director will be sought through a national executive search, which will commence shortly. Dr David Sudmalis, Director of Arts Tasmania, will act in the role of TMAG Director during this process.
