Constitutional and Incorporation Documents

As the new president of the Arts Council of Australia (Queensland Division), Gertrude Langer took an active role in shaping the direction of the Queensland Division. Part of this was to negotiate with the Arts Council of Australia (New South Wales Division) regarding the possibility of a Federal Arts Council with a Federal constitution. This negotiation consists of correspondence between Gertrude Langer and Gordon Horswell. The Arts Council of Australia (Queensland Division) drew up articles of association and there are five annotated drafts. The final result is a copy of the Constitution dated 31 December 1963. Drafts (typescript and handwritten) of the aims and objectives of the Arts Council of Australia (Queensland Division) are also included.
