Queensland deserves its fair share of federal arts funding.

Queenslanders pay nearly 20 per cent of the nation’s individual taxes but receive only around 6 per cent of core arts funding. We don't get our fair share when it comes to Australia Council grants, either.

The Commonwealth should make a direct financial contribution to Queensland Theatre’s remodelling of the Bille Brown Studio, right here on the Southside.

The Bille Brown Studio project is a milestone for Queensland Theatre, and will provide a more versatile theatre space for local and visiting productions. It's exciting to have the Theatre in our local area, and it's wonderful to see such great locally-developed and produced shows, like My Name is Jimi, and The Longest Minute, telling stories that matter to Queenslanders. The Commonwealth should show its support for our homegrown Queensland talent.
