Announcing the recipients of our Arts Leadership Mentoring Pilot Program
We’ve supported five arts organisations to participate in our Arts Leadership Mentoring Pilot Program in 2019. The program offers Queensland arts organisations to work one-on-one with an experienced arts leader.
Five arts organisations from Queensland were selected by an assessment team to undertake a unique opportunity to work one-on-one with an experienced arts leader to build capacity within their staff and volunteers and bolster skillsets and sustainability.
The Arts Leadership Mentorship Pilot Program is an eleven-month-long opportunity for the five successful organisations to work together with experienced consultants to work towards long-term operational success while strengthening the Queensland arts sector.
The five arts organisations accepted into the program are:
- Creative Broadcasters Limited t/a 4ZZZ
- Crossroad Arts Inc
- Digi Youth Arts Inc
- KickArts Contemporary Arts
4ZZZ is Queensland’s not-for-profit FM community radio station. Their focus is alternative music, news and culture. 4ZZZ were recipients of Creative Partnerships Australia’s 2017/18 Plus1 matched funding round. They raised $15,000 which was then matched by Creative Partnerships Australia to address immediate building repairs and renovations to the station’s building. 4ZZZ aims to build capacity within its broadcasters, continue to support staff, expand its listener and community supporter base.
Empowering individuals in the aged and disability sector through creative expression, Crossroads Arts is currently experiencing a renewal phase and aims to strengthen its governance and operational structures and develop new partnerships.
Brisbane’s Digi Youth Arts is a leading not-for-profit arts organisation, based in Brisbane and dedicated to developing the next generation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists. They’re focusing on strategic planning and fundraising policies.
KickArts delivers dynamic arts programs, enriching the cultural environment of North Queensland. KickArts returns from a renovation period with a renewed commitment to enrich artists, engage the community, and build new relationships.
Playlab is an incubator and promotion platform for playwrights in Queensland. Their future plans include a new digital platform and increase revenue growth.
Mentorships will begin in February 2019.
