Arts and Cultural Investment Framework 2013-2014
The Arts and Cultural Investment Framework is a significant change to the way the government invests in arts and culture in Queensland. It presents an opportunity to collectively rethink, reshape and reimagine future investment in arts and culture in Queensland.
The Government is committed to working with the arts community to implement this change
and revitalise the way the arts and cultural sector, government and business work with
each other and the wider community to get things done.
1. Artistic and cultural quality
Target government investment to programs that have the greatest artistic and cultural impact — powerful artistic
outcomes that have an inspirational and transformative impact on Queenslanders wherever they live, and for
national and international audiences.
2. Balanced portfolio
Balance government investment to support a diversity of art form areas, geographic regions, large and small
organisations, independent artists and producers.
3. Return driven
Deliver a clear return on government investment, demonstrated through artistic, cultural, social or economic
outcomes. Artists, projects, programs and organisations that are successful in receiving funding will partner and
co-invest with government, match government investment with revenue from other sources, and generate income and in-kind support from other partners.
4. Vitality and innovation
Support a dynamic and aspirational arts and cultural sector, foster entrepreneurial and commercial approaches, and create new partnerships between the arts, community and business.
