Vision for Queensland as the nation’s cultural hub

The Queensland Government is delivering on its promise to make Queensland the cultural hub of Australia with a plan to upgrade Brisbane’s Cultural Precinct.

Premier Campbell Newman and Arts Minister Ian Walker today unveiled a draft Master Plan set to transform the precinct into a world-leading entertainment and cultural tourism destination.

“The Master Plan is a bold vision to guide future development and investment over the next 20 years, proposing new theatres, hotels, dining and science facilities as well as a new learning centre,” Mr Newman said.

“We want to make what’s great about Queensland even better, and the economic advantages of a booming cultural precinct will be felt by all Queenslanders.

“The precinct is currently a magnet for cultural tourists, and we want attract even more visitors to Brisbane to enjoy our great arts scene.

“Each year, the Queensland Performing Arts Centre alone welcomes more than one million visitors through its doors, that’s half the population of Brisbane or almost 20 capacity games at Suncorp Stadium.

“This plan provides a blueprint to attract private sector investment and grow the two economic pillars of tourism and construction.”

Arts Minister Ian Walker said there was unprecedented public demand in Queensland for performing arts with people turning out in droves to purchase tickets for Disney’s The Lion King at QPAC and recent sell out, Cai Guo-Qiang: Falling Back to Earth at the Gallery of Modern Art.

“We want to keep attracting these magnificent shows while preserving what makes South Bank so unique and attractive.

“With the potential proposed by the Queen’s Wharf development, the Kurilpa Urban Renewal, and South Bank Parklands reporting more than 10 million visitors each year, the Cultural Precinct is an important jewel in the Queensland crown,” Mr Walker said.

“It’s essential that we plan for the future to ensure the precinct builds on its potential.

“The Master Plan will help us do this and ensure that it makes the precinct home to our major arts institutions, a vital cultural hub that will continue to be loved by locals and visited by national and international tourists.”

Absolutely no creation of place along the roads.  Just leaves them as the ugly scars they are.
