Thankyou to NAVA (National Association for the Visual Arts) for compiling this fantastic resource ahead of the Queensland State Election on Saturday 31st October! It gives a snapshot of what the major parties are offering our industry.



If you're after a more detailed explanation, Artshub have published an opinion piece from Labor and The Greens about their arts and cultural vision. Read them here:

*ArtsHub has also approached the LNP about their vision and policies for the arts, which will be published once received. 

Join the founding members of BVAA (Brisbane Visual Arts Advocacy) as we officially launch Brisbane’s newest arts advocacy group, specifically focused on supporting and advocating for independent and artist-run projects across our city!


BVAA is an artist-run working group which anyone can join and contribute to. Hear about who we are, why we’ve started, and what our plans are, and bring your own to the table.


There are simple membership options to ensure that your voice is represented in our advocacy, in addition to more active inclusion in our working group. So, if you are an independent visual artist or artsworker that is interested in advocacy, strategic planning, artist-run projects and artist-run futures for our city, please come along!


We are offering both a Zoom option and an opportunity to come and attend in person, capped at 30 people.


In the mean-time, please invite fellow industry members to this event. Oh, and in the spirit of a working group, remember to bring laptops!


Date: Thurs 22nd October

Time: 6:30pm

Venue: The Burrow, West End

Zoom Link: TBC (to be posted in the FB Event on the day)

Facebook Event: https://www.facebook.com/events/812484142632413/


BVAA pays our respects to the traditional custodians of the Country on which we live, work, play and create, the Jagera and Turrbal people, and acknowledge the valuable cultural contributions of Indigenous artists across the nation.
