Leading an innovative, connected and sustainable arts sector in regional Queensland and beyond that provides value for the community, businesses, government and creative professionals.

The Creative Arts Alliance works across South East Queensland North in partnership with six local councils – Gympie, Noosa, Sunshine Coast, Moreton Bay, Somerset & Redlands.

Creative Arts Alliance recognises that we work and create on the lands of the Quandamooka, Yuggera, Turrbal, Jinibara, Kabi Kabi/Gubbi Gubbi, Waka Waka and Butchula/Badtjala peoples. We acknowledge them as Traditional Owners, Custodians, First Peoples and the first artists, storytellers, performers and creatives of these lands. We pay our deep respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.

“Across its first three years of operation, CAA has consistently demonstrated an appetite and ability to champion regional arts practices and enable the creation of new work – with a particular and necessary emphasis on First Nations arts practices. These are invariably of a high quality and continue to be critically and socially engaged.”
