WHO WE ARE
ArtsConnect Ipswich Inc is affiliated with Arts Queensland, the peak body for regional arts in Queensland.
We were formed over 60 years ago as Ipswich’s local Arts Council and have run continuously since that time. The name ArtsConnect defines our purpose of Connecting our Community with and through the Arts.
To sustain the arts in the Ipswich region by fostering creativity and enriching lives in the community through access to and participation in the arts.
To support creative artists and groups through providing sponsorship and professional development opportunities and organising and participating in local arts events and festivals.
We are a friendly and vibrant Not for Profit organisation run by volunteers. Our members are visual artists, textile artists, musicians, dancers, authors, poets, sculptors, actors and those who support the arts.
Our meetings are held in the board room of Ipswich Art Gallery on the first Saturday of each month at 1:00pm, unless advised otherwise. Just ask the person at reception to let you through to the stairs.
Activities are advised to members by email, Facebook and through the EVENTS page of this website.
