10 Dec Creative Capital: Arts and Culture Strategic Directions for Queensland
Creative Capital: Arts and Culture Strategic Directions for Queensland is an opportunity to reflect on where we have come over the past five years and how we can build on our successes into the future.
The name ‘Creative Capital’ highlights that arts and cultural ‘riches’ or capital, found in every part of the state, make a vital contribution to the social and economic capital of Queensland.
