Creative Regions’ work is centred on making arts experiences that are relevant to regional communities.

To do this, we work with government agencies, industry bodies, companies and the not for profit sectors to understand the big ideas and issues affecting communities then designing arts-led responses to those issues.

The arts in all its forms (performing, visual, digital or hybrid work) is central to engagement in big picture debates and discussions and is part of a healthy democratic society.

Creative Regions is proud to be delivering courageous and exciting work that challenges these big ideas in regional Queensland.

Examples of our work in this area include

A play exploring teenagers’ relationships with networked technologies, social media, and each other.
