State Government funding will create new arts experiences for Queensland audiences with investment from the Queensland Arts Showcase Program. Strengthen operations, support artistic programming and support infrastructural resilience for arts organizations set in, run by, and serving communities of color. The goal of the Culture Program is to strengthen arts organizations by ensuring racially diverse program offerings, artists’ commissions, staff, board leadership, and ultimately audience – and do that in measurable, sustainable ways.
