  • Creating out loud: Developing sustainable peer-mentoring to rebuild the arts post COVID-19 September 2021

    Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, Queensland’s arts sector employed 80,000+ people, around 75% of whom have lost employment due to restrictions on public gatherings. By developing and embedding a sustainable peer-mentoring program that fosters capacity, collaboration, resilience, and well-being, this Advance Queensland Industry Research Fellowship project led by Dr Kate Power from UQ School of Business will help rebuild artistic and business practices, thus protecting Queensland’s significant cultural assets and enriching the lives of Queenslanders.

Focusing on Cairns, the Gold Coast, Central West and the Sunshine Coast – four regional areas of Queensland, Australia – this article by Prof. Terry Flew and researcher Katherine Kirkwood from the QUT Digital Media Research Centre provides an overview of impacts on cultural tourism and considers the prospects for regional cultural tourism as part of a ‘creative economy’ revival.
