FREE professional development opportunities

You asked for it! Over the last 3 years, LGAQ has worked with our arts and cultural partners to bring you a series of free online professional development opportunities.

The informative webinars – designed specifically for a local government audience – addressed emerging issues and challenges, such as funding, public art and cultural tourism.

Resources from previous webinars, including video are available to view on CultureLink.

Protocol between state and local government nears completion

A draft of the Protocol Between State and Local Government in Relation to Arts and Culture in Queensland was approved by LGAQ's Policy Executive on 13 February and, pending approval by Queensland State Government, will be launched in early to mid 2014.

The Protocol is a significant milestone in intergovernmental relations and the impetus for more effective dialogue and collaboration between the two spheres of government.
