New Direction for Managing Director Stephen Bowers

After nearly six years at the helm, Stephen Bowers has resigned as Managing Director. In announcing Stephen’s resignation, Jane Yuile, Chair of JamFactory Board said ‘Stephen has done a wonderful job in further building JamFactory’s reputation and influence within the visual arts, craft and design sector both nationally and internationally. He took JamFactory to new heights by vision, team work, management and passion for visual arts, craft and design, producing outstanding results and delivering strong benefits to artists and the community’.
Stephen will continue to contribute to the sector via various positions he holds and will devote more time to his own artistic practice, which will include a small exhibition of current works presented (appropriately enough) in JamFactory’s Studio works retail gallery during the Adelaide Festival.
The search for a new director is underway and JamFactory Board of Management look forward to making an announcement soon.
