Creative Brisbane Creative Economy

The Creative Brisbane Creative Economy 2013-22 strategy aims to strengthen Brisbane’s liveability as a vibrant creative hub and to ensure Brisbane will be the premier location for talented people to live, work and play; a city to raise families, and develop careers and economic potential.

The strategy outlines Brisbane City Council’s vision for a creative and prosperous Brisbane, where:

  • new visitors, students and arriving migrants are given the best possible opportunity to experience all the city has to offer
  • our cultural diversity is celebrated
  • Brisbane’s creative industries will thrive

Brisbane will become an expressive, enthusiastic and energetic hub. Our culture, lifestyle, climate and attitude will attract talent and investment and offer the means for our local companies to retain and cultivate that talent to become among the world’s best.
