Arts and Cultural Recovery Package

Arts and Cultural Recovery Package

The Queensland Government has announced (16 June 2020) a new $22.5 million two-year Arts and Cultural Recovery Package for Queensland’s arts and cultural sector as part of Queensland’s Economic Recovery Strategy: Stage Two.

The Arts and Cultural Recovery Package includes a range of measures to strengthen the sector’s foundations for the future, drive new creative work, employ artists and arts workers, retain our skilled and talented creatives, and importantly, ensure the activation of our venues.

The package includes:

  • $11.3 million to assist in offsetting revenue losses and stabilising businesses in live music and performing arts organisations and venues.
  • $4.2m to fund a pipeline of performing arts and live music to support cultural and tourism recovery
  • $4.15m in new grants to support audience and market access
  • $2.9m to support partnerships with local councils, venues, artists, festivals and organisations to continue employment and provide unique experiences across Queensland.
