Arts Nexus

Growing creative people, communities and industries

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 the region 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
