Creative Arts Alliance is a leading arts industry body working to strengthen the creative and cultural sectors across regional Queensland.

Building on the legacy of the Sunshine Coast Creative Alliance, a new entity was formed in 2018, the Creative Arts Alliance, which broadens the scope, reach and ambition of our work into the future.

The Creative Arts Alliance was successful in receiving funding from Arts Queensland to deliver the Regional Arts Services Network (RASN) initiative in South East Queensland North (SEQN) over the next 3 years.

RASN in South East Queensland North is also delivered in partnership with six local councils – Gympie, Noosa, Sunshine Coast, Moreton Bay, Somerset & Redlands.
