Council is comprised of up to 12 members who contribute to the governance, strategies, and vision of the organisation.

Council members for 2019/2020 are Marc Kalina (President), Sibonelo Gumede (Vice President), Nkululeko Mthembu (Treasurer), Margaret Jack (Secretary), Jo Voysey (Chair Exhibition Sub-Committee), Greer Valley, Steve Kotze, Penny de Vries, and Dane Knudsen.
The operations team is headed by Angela Shaw as Creative Director. Shaw oversees the direction of the organisation and the management of the Gallery and Shop.
