rethink, reshape, reimagine

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.

What’s changed?

  • Creation of the Arts Investment Advisory Board

  • Framework gives context for Government investment in the arts

  • Fewer grants categories with less restrictive criteria

  • Focus on ideas and outcomes rather than complex eligibility requirements

  • AQ outside the assessment process

  • Peers/industry experts involved in assessment process

  • Single point of contact – Grants Support Officer

  • Easier applications that are user-friendly

Investment principles

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.
