Celebrating our distinct, different and diverse cultural sector
Not only is our city rich in world-class artists, performers, makers and musicians, but we also boast a diverse range of cultural organisations and vibrant council venues – all drenched in community spirit.
In short, the breadth of professional and passionate creatives in Logan is epic. And we’re not afraid to put our skin in the game and wear our hearts on our sleeves.
Here’s the rub.
Waaaay too often, local government and business are looking outside the region, instead of supporting our local creative talent.
And so many of you have told us that you’re keen to put your hand up for opportunities for public activation projects to bring our city to life… but you’re not sure how to get in front of the right people to make that happen.
You need a way to shine a light on what you do so the right people see it.
That’s where the Logan Arts Directory comes in
This directory and cultural calendar is all about making you visible and giving you a way to connect, collaborate and answer call outs for the opportunities you want to get involved in.
It’s a place for you to showcase your best work – whether it’s film, music, visual art or your latest books.
It will give us a way to advocate for Logan artists and creatives like you, and share your work far and wide.
Cultivating connections to build a stronger sector
This directory is also a place for you to make connections and build relationships with cultural organisations, businesses and council.
Because, we’re stronger, louder, and harder to ignore together.
Plus, it’s a place for these organisations to find you based on what you create and what opportunities you’re interested in.
So, the next time council is looking for artists in a public art project, a speaker, photographer or musician for a project or event? They’ll find you here.
Or if a fellow artist, producer, event organiser needs someone like you to hire or collaborate with? You guessed it, they’ll find you here.
More opportunities to reach your creative goals – your way
The best part is, you can choose opportunities and collaborative partners that help suit your goals.
We’re developing this directory and calendar right now, and you’re invited to join!
If you’re an individual artist, band, collective or cultural organisation – we want to share your work.
You’ll be the first to build your profile when it’s launched.
