Alexandria needs volunteers for Torpedo Factory task force

Changes coming to the Torpedo Factory Art Center have been among the more contentious discussions in Alexandria over the last few years, but the City of Alexandria is looking for two locals to serve on a board to help direct the art center’s future.

The city is looking for two at-large members for the Torpedo Factory Art Center Stakeholder Task Force.

“The at-large members will be part of a 20-member Task Force that includes, but is not limited to, artists, tourism representatives, local businesses, and Commissioners,” the city said in a release. “The at-large members of the Task Force will be selected through an open application process to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to participate.”

The goal of the task force is to guide the city’s policy toward making the Torpedo Factory more of an active attraction. Some of the current plans for the Torpedo Factory include changes to the ground floor that might bring in other uses at the cost of artist space.

“In alignment with the principles adopted by the City Council, a Stakeholder Task Force was established to develop an approach to address vibrancy and sustainability of the Torpedo Factory Art Center. The Task Force will work with a facilitator, staff, and consultants to broaden the scope of artistic expression and improve artist diversity,” the release said. “Task Force members will be expected to attend scheduled meetings as well as participate in the various community engagement activities (i.e., open house events, town halls, focus groups, etc.).”

The task force is expected to meet for around 10-12 months. Applications are due by 5 p.m. on Friday, June 24.
