Dear Friends and Supporters of GASP
It is with regret that I write to announce the departure of Pippa Dickson who is stepping down as CEO of GASP effective from June this year.
As you can imagine, after more than seven years working to develop GASP this has been a very difficult decision for Pippa to make, however with increasing organisational sustainability she is now looking forward to exploring new opportunities.
During her time, she has worked successfully with the community to shape a shared vision for GASP and has worked tirelessly to secure the necessary funding to implement it and transform the site into the award winning experience it is today. She has been a determined, visionary and charismatic leader, always aiming high and achieving extraordinary outcomes with limited financial and staffing resources. As Pippa has said often, GASP is not for the faint hearted.
When she departs in June, Pippa will be leaving a permanent legacy for Glenorchy, not only in the magnificent boardwalk and pavilion that have both won international acclaim, but also a number of internationally resonant permanent and ephemeral art works that will be launched over the coming months. These outcomes have been achieved as a result of Pippa’s ability to work in partnership with the community, with the Board of GASP, with the Glenorchy City Council, with the arts community, with architects and builders, as well as with funders and supporters.
Over the coming months there will be a number of opportunities to celebrate Pippa’s contribution to GASP as new works are unveiled on the GASP site. I am sure during that period you will have the opportunity to celebrate with her. We wish her the very best with her future endeavours.
