The Palaszczuk Government is supporting 16 artists and arts workers with funding to help them undertake international partnerships, professional development and mentorship opportunities Minister for the Arts Leeanne Enoch has announced.

“An investment of $96,628 through Arts Queensland’s Individuals Fund will have a positive impact in the arts sector and will help put our wonderful Queensland artistic talent on the world stage,” Ms Enoch said.

“The successful recipients have expertise in a variety of areas, including visual arts, classical music, writing, theatre, contemporary music and community engagement.

“For example, Brisbane Fringe Festival co-director Matt Seery will go to Edinburgh’s World Fringe Congress to meet festival organisers from around the world, while Dr Kim Cecile Elton is recording original compositions for piano and Scottish bagpipes at Glasgow’s Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

“Producer and circus director Emma Serjeant will also be able to develop new markets at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and in Seoul, Korea.

“These are amazing opportunities for our Queensland artists.

“Internships and mentorships made possible through the Individuals Fund help our Queensland artists to tell their stories and spread their knowledge to others across the globe.”
