The Queensland Chamber for Arts and Culture is an independent, non-partisan voice for the arts and culture in Queensland, aiming for culture, arts, and creativity to be central to civic life, economic development and political priorities in Queensland. 


Since it was established in 2015, the Chamber has been managed by a volunteer committee comprised of members of the Queensland arts and cultural sector. During this time, the Chamber has played an advocacy role, provided responses to government policy and, through the Regional Arts Working Group, played a significant role in the establishment of the Queensland Government’s Regional Arts Services Network. 


In the next stage of development, the Chamber will formalise an organisational structure and establish a financial model that supports the work of the Chamber to move beyond a sole reliance on volunteers. 


The project

Fieldworx has been contracted by QCAC, through Flying Arts Alliance, to develop the Business Model and Implementation Plan for their next stage of development. The key deliverables for the project are:

  • Engage QCAC stakeholders in establishing QCAC as a formal entity,
  • Develop a business model and strategy, 
  • Develop a staged implementation plan, 
  • Deliver stage one of the implementation plan. 


The project commenced in May and will be completed by September 2019. It is being overseen by a Project Steering Group and project managed by Flying Arts. The project is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
