Creating an exciting new vision for contemporary arts and culture

Brisbane Powerhouse unveils a revitalised program for contemporary arts in the RiverCity following Covid and floods.

Appointed just 14 months ago, CEO and Artistic Director of the Brisbane Powerhouse, Kate Gould, returned to the RiverCity after an 18-year absence. With a solid background in programming, plus management roles at the Adelaide Festival and the creation of Dark Mofo festival in Tasmania, Gould arrived with an enthusiastic vision to rejuvenate and revitalise the current arts programming.
