Creating Our Future
Creativity takes centre stage in plan for Queensland’s future
The Palaszczuk Government is calling on Queenslanders and the arts sector to help inform the future for the state’s arts, cultural and creative sector, following the release of a discussion paper in October 2018.
Minister Enoch said the consultation reaches out to Queenslanders, the sector and other stakeholders on how best to grow the sector and enhance economic and social outcomes.
As a result of this consultation process, Arts Queensland have initiated a discussion with QMusic to identify key industry development initiatives for future funding.
To make use of previous industry consultation on this issue, QMusic will provide the Queensland Government with ideas generated by the 2016 Live Music Roundtable, as well as the 2017 Brisbane Music City Study undertaken by Sound Diplomacy.
Queensland is witnessing a period of rapid change fuelled by changing demographics, evolving consumer tastes and expectations, social trends and digital transformation. It is important to ensure the sector can respond proactively to the opportunities and challenges it is likely to experience in the future.
By completing the online survey people are being encouraged to have their say on how they think the sector can support Queensland priorities and what the opportunities are to expand current practice and initiatives.
“The arts, creative and cultural sectors have the ability to inspire and affect far-reaching positive change throughout Queensland. We invite the public and communities across the state, industry, business and all levels of government to share insights and help us gather a wide range of views and voices"Leeanne Enoch
Minister for the Arts
The Creating Queensland’s Future: 10-Year Roadmap for the arts, cultural and creative sector discussion paper proposes a vision, key priorities and topline actions to stimulate discussion and gather feedback on the direction of the sector and its role in creating Queensland’s future.
You can provide feedback on the discussion paper via an online survey, written submission or by attending a public forum.
Feedback collected on the discussion paper will inform an arts, cultural and creative sector 10-Year Roadmap and action plan to be published in mid 2019.
For more information on how Queenslanders can participate in the consultation visit Arts Queensland website.
Consultation closes Tuesday 18 December 2018.
