Queensland Performing Arts Centre

Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) is the state's premier performing arts centre. Located on the banks of the Brisbane river, QPAC is one of four organisations that make up the state's cultural precinct. QPAC fosters an environment of innovation, creativity, entrepreneurship and learning. The Centre is driven by a desire to entertain, a capacity to create and the genuine wish to support moving and memorable experiences. 

Each year QPAC showcases the best in performance from Australia and around the world. Their venues host leading international and Australian actors, dancers, musicians, artists and companies. In addition, QPAC produces or co-produces some of Australia's most innovative and successful shows. QPAC is also a performance home to some of the state's leading performing arts companies including Queensland Theatre Company, Queensland Ballet, The Queensland Orchestra and Opera Queensland. Host to almost three-quarters of a million people each year, QPAC delivers integrated services designed to offer patrons an experience that extends beyond the walls of the theatre.

QPAC also takes a leading role in the advancement of research and debate that articulates the value of creative industries as fundamental drivers of economic growth.
