Growing creative people, communities and industries
With a valued twenty year legacy in the region, Arts Nexus has the industry knowledge, the relationships, memberships, respect, integrity and capacity, to lead the strategic development as a service provider, key facilitator, incubator, promoter, communicator and co-ordinator, of the emerging, the established, the disparate and evolving creative endeavours and enterprises that are dispersed across the vast area of FNQ.
WHO WE ARE
Arts Nexus, is a non-government, “for-purpose” community based entity, revitalising and expanding its operational capacity to equip the Far North Queensland (FNQ) arts, cultural and creative industries sector to be a significant partner in the cultural, social and economic development of the region, Queensland and Australia. A catalytic leader that drives policy and strategic planning to contribute to the regional planning and provide innovative solutions that incorporate cultural context.
“We believe that Cairns is a hot spot for creativity. Behind many homes, community halls, sheds and shared spaces are creative micro businesses and individual practitioners that contribute to the vibrancy of our region. There is not a week goes by that you can’t see something amazing that has been generated locally.
At Arts Nexus we aim to support the arts and cultural sector to put more money into their pockets and ultimately into the economy.”
Jenuarrie, President, Arts Nexus
