THE IDEAS DISTILLERY PROJECTS
Creative Industry Development
After several years of development, The Ideas Distillery will be seeking funding in 2019 to provide a program to Central Queensland Artists and Artisans to build commercial capacity.
Through funding from Arts Queensland and CQ RASN, business workshops will be facilitated in partnership with Flying Arts Alliance in Bundaberg, Rockhampton and Mackay in early 2020. Further funding is being sought to support Artisan in Residence programs in seven local government areas to provide skill development and mentoring through Artisan.
CQ RASN and CQ University is also partnering to facilitate a webinar series to build sector knowledge and capacity.
Ultimately, the aim is to provide support to the development of multiple sustainable micro businesses and cooperatives.
