Creative Together 2020-2030 is the Queensland Government's 10-year vision which will see Queensland renewed and transformed – socially, culturally and economically through arts, culture and creativity. 

It responds to the significant opportunities the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games present for Queenslanders, acknowledges the continuing impacts of the global pandemic, and supports the Queensland Government’s Statement of Commitment to a Path to Treaty.

Creative Together looks to the future, where the strength of the sector will foster the growth of bold and rich cultural experiences for audiences, and where arts and culture are valued for the important role they play in enriching Queensland and securing a prosperous and creative future for the state.
