Museum & Galleries QLD Among Recipients of Queensland Arts Showcase Program Funding

Hendra-based Museums & Galleries Queensland will be one of the 13 recipients of the $400,000 Queensland Arts Showcase Program, one of the major arts funding programs of the State Government.   

Under the grants program, M&G QLD will get $59,500 to fund their Mentorship, International Fellowship & Internship Program.

The fellowship and internship program supports paid and volunteer staff in Queensland public museums and galleries to access expertise in national and international cultural institutions for professional development.

According to Minister for the Arts Leeanne Enoch, this latest round of projects highlights some amazing work being undertaken across a range of artistic disciplines, including visual arts, theatre, comedy and cabaret.
