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 today.

Minister for the Arts Leeanne Enoch said people were now able to have their say on Creating Queensland’s Future: 10-Year Roadmap for the arts, cultural and creative sector.

“Consultation on the roadmap opens today and will inform the future direction of state government investment,” Minister Enoch said.

“The arts, creative and cultural sectors have the ability to inspire and affect far-reaching positive change throughout Queensland.

“We are serious about nurturing creativity and creative storytelling, supporting cultural and economic development, and boosting the capacity of the sector.

“We know that creativity is key to Queensland’s future as a critical skill set for jobs in the growing knowledge economy.

“This is a sector that has great potential to connect communities, drive cultural tourism, create employment opportunities and affect positive change in all areas of society, from education to health and justice issues,” Minister Enoch said.

“A focus on the arts, cultural and creative industries is part of the Government’s commitment to Advancing Queensland’s Priorities, and the consultation will ensure a considered and inclusive approach to grow and evolve the sector.”

Queensland Chamber for Arts and Culture spokesperson Katherine Hoepper welcomed the release of the discussion paper.

“This is a significant opportunity for all Queenslanders to contribute to shaping a future Queensland that is richer for its supported and resourced arts and cultural sector, and in turn enhances the social fabric and economy of Queensland,” she said.

“The Chamber supports access to arts, culture and creativity for all Queenslanders and encourages everyone to participate in the consultation around the Roadmap.

“We look forward to working closely with Minister Enoch to ensure that the Chamber’s priorities of First People’s culture and arts, young people, regional arts and disability arts are strongly represented.”

The Creating Queensland’s Future: 10-year Roadmap for the arts, cultural and creative sector discussion paper has been developed to support the consultation process and includes a draft vision for the sector.

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.

“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,” she said.
