Investing in Arts, Culture and Community

Residents, local artists and grassroots groups are the lifeblood of our community. But they are losing spaces and opportunities to the big corporations and developers favoured by Labor and the LNP. While more and more of our public assets are fenced off by big developers, the few community facilities that remain are chronically underfunded.ย 

Our neighbourhoods are vibrant centres for arts, community, and culture. As a DJ and arts worker, a thriving cultural scene is one of the most important elements of the Gabba Ward, and from collecting hundreds of pieces of residentsโ€™ feedback, I know many of you agree.

As your Councillor, I will fight for more public spaces for community, arts and culture to flourish in. I will push to deliver vital funding to local clubs so they can swap the pokies for performers, and to ban gambling companies from operating in Council venues. And I will work tirelessly to help put leases for public facilities in the hands of active, local community groups.
