A Consortium comprising Foresters Community Finance, Positive Solutions and QUT Creative Enterprise Australia (CEA) is working with Arts Queensland to lead the way with a new arts fund that mixes public and private investment. Today Arts Minister Ian Walker launched the Arts Business Innovation Fund (ABIF). The Fund seeks to assist arts organisations in Queensland in pursuit of innovative business initiatives that present opportunities for long-term sustainability.
