Organisations Fund 2021 - 2024
Arts Queensland is implementing measures to support small to medium arts organisations impacted by the COVID-19 crisis. Read about important changes to AQ’s Organisations Fund.
Funding for outstanding arts and cultural organisations
The Organisations Fund is a key component of Arts Queensland’s investment framework, providing operational funding to Queensland-based arts and cultural organisations across a range of art forms and practice. Organisations contribute to Queensland’s arts and cultural profile by capturing Queensland’s culture, heritage and distinctive stories through delivery of high-quality creative practice, products and services for all Queenslanders.
The objectives of the fund are outlined below in the examples of how arts culture and creativity will deliver on the Advancing Queensland Priorities.
|Advancing Queensland Priorities||Examples of how arts, culture and creativity will deliver on priorities|
