From big budget Hollywood blockbusters to international music acts, renowned theatre productions and art exhibitions, the world is coming to Queensland. The Palaszczuk Government continues to grow a vibrant, sustainable arts and cultural sector. A successful and growing sector contributes to the creation of jobs and a diverse economy.
The 2017-18 Queensland Budget contributes:
over four years for an Arts Infrastructure Investment Fund to prioritise infrastructure projects in state-owned arts and cultural facilities
for Rockhampton Regional Council to support the planned relocation of the city’s art gallery
over four years for Indigenous and regional arts initiatives
over two years to transform the Queensland Museum’s Sciencentre into a cutting edge interactive hub for science, technology, engineering and mathematics
for an arts incubator space for start-up Indigenous performance companies and to commission new dance performances at the Cairns Centre of Contemporary Arts and within Indigenous communities.
The Palaszczuk Government is continuing its four-year $30 million commitment to attract large-scale film and high-end television productions to Queensland. Projects include Thor: Ragnarok, Aquaman and Tidelands (a Netflix Original Series).
