Burnett artists, Queensland wants your help

CREATIVES in the South Burnett are invited to have their say about art progression in Queensland.

The Queensland Government are holding a forum in the South Burnett to get opinions about the future of Queensland's arts, cultural and creative sector.

According to an Arts Queensland spokesperson, the sector helps drive cultural tourism, creates employment opportunities and makes a positive impact on all areas of society, from education to health and justice issues.

"The forums, held across Queensland, are part of an eight week consultation process on the 'Creating Queensland's Future' discussion paper, which outlines how arts, culture and creativity are vital to Queensland's future,” they said.

"The discussion paper includes a draft vision for the sector and is the first step towards developing a 10-Year Roadmap to guide Queensland's artistic and cultural future.”

The region's forum will be held at the Kingaroy Town Hall on Tuesday, December 11, from 3.30pm to 5.30pm.

"We want to hear from as many Queenslanders as possible and encourage South Burnett residents, along with business, industry and government representatives, to attend their local forum,” they said.

"The forum will be a chance for the South Burnett community to have their say on Queensland's creative future as part of a facilitated discussion.”

Arts Queensland would like to remind that opinions of these attendants are very valuable.

"Hearing the perspective of the public is as important to the consultation as hearing the views of those involved the arts sector,” they said.

"Information and feedback gathered through this consultation will help inform critical planning, strategy development and guide the future direction of the Queensland Government's investment in the arts.”
