Administrative history

A not-for-profit organisation, Queensland Arts Council (also know as Arts Council of Australia, Queensland Division) provided access to live performing arts exhibitions to both metropolitan and region areas of Queensland. The council also lent support to communities in the development of local arts programs. The Council toured mainstage and school productions. It folded in 2016.

In 1973, The Arts Council of Australia (Queensland Division) changed its name to Queensland Arts Council (which became its company name) and the name Arts Council of Australia (Queensland Division) was registered as a trading name. It continued to use both names in its advertising material until its trading name was changed to Artslink Queensland. ArtsLink Queensland folded in 2016.

Scope and content

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.
