Your support helps make artists’ dreams a reality. It has had a direct impact on thousands of artists, educators, young people and communities and schools across Queensland.
Together, we can build a thriving visual arts landscape across Queensland.
Your donation, especially during these unprecedented times, will assist us to provide support and services in our pursuit of a creative life for all Queenslanders – particularly those in regional, rural and remote areas.

Queensland’s Creative Communities Need Our Help.

Creative individuals and communities have been among the hardest hit with school, gallery and gathering-place closures, mass cancellations of events and activities, travel restrictions and in many cases, a life-changing loss of personal income. Lives and livelihoods have been profoundly affected.
As an industry and as individuals, as restrictions ease, we are now entering a period of recovery.
What Flying Arts is doing
Flying Arts have been working hard behind the scenes to ensure that we can continue to provide vital services to artists, artsworkers, creative communities and schools across Queensland. We have been innovating our programs, adapting more of our professional development for online delivery where possible, and most importantly, making sure that the services we provide remain accessible.
Artists and arts experiences are vital to our communities and our cultural identity. It is the reason we do this work. And we are doing everything we can to support them.
How can you help?
Your tax-deductible donation during the month of June will contribute directly to supporting Queensland’s artists, artsworkers, educators, schools and communities. It will go towards supporting participation in programs that will enhance careers, hone practices, build professional pathways, and engage young people in enriching arts programs. It will help us get our exhibitions back on the road again, and into regional Queensland.
Perhaps most importantly, at this very pivotal time in history, it will enable us to ensure that arts experiences and professional development for those who wish to pursue art as a lifetime interest or career remains accessible for all Queenslanders.
Please give back to our artists and creative communities who give us so much by donating to our Art For Life Fund. Every dollar makes a difference. Thank You!
