First Nations storytellers receive funding boost

Performing arts in QLD receive major boost as recipients of two funding streams announced.

The Palaszczuk Government has cemented its commitment to First Nations arts organisations through the announcement of the first recipients of the First Nations Pathways Fund, which injects a total of $2.6M into the state over 2022–2025.

The program provides capacity building support for five emerging First Nations performing arts companies over four years: The Pryce Centre for Culture and Arts (Cairns), Karul Projects (Gold Coast), Quandamooka Yoolooburrabee Aboriginal Corporation RNTBC (North Stradbroke Island), Nintiringanyi Indigenous Corporation (Cairns) and Grace Lillian Lee Productions (Cairns).
