The Regional Creative Hubs are aimed to provide a service-delivery model to support and upskill Queensland rural creative practitioners or community arts organisations. It is also envisaged that the Regional Creative Hubs will have strong working relationships with other local community services – for example, halls/rooms, children’s services, disability networks, schools and other ‘non arts’ community organisations
