QPAC is a place where audiences and artists come together to connect, learn, share stories and celebrate.

The proud home of live performance in Queensland for more than 35 years, Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC), welcomes more than 1.5 million visitors to over 1,200 performances each year. To these many visitors, QPAC delivers performance that they can feel and share and that can take them to a place of pure joy. These shared experiences help us to better understand the world around us and contribute to building a more resilient and inclusive community.

As a venue, QPAC provides an inspiring and welcoming environment for audiences, artists and presenting companies. As a producer, QPAC broadens the choice of live performance available to Queenslanders through creative development and investment in signature programs including the QPAC International Series, Out of the Box and First Nations Program, and the presentation or co-presentation of a diverse range of local, national and international artists and companies. As an investor, QPAC both collaborates with commercial producers on national and international tours and nurtures emerging artists through pathways to professional development. 

At QPAC’s core is the pursuit of excellence in live performance and cultural thinking to help sustain and grow our vibrant arts community.

Located in a thriving cultural and educational precinct at South Bank that encompasses the Queensland Cultural Centre, QPAC is a Statutory Body of the Queensland Government with its responsibilities set out in the Queensland Performing Arts Trust Act 1977. QPAC is governed by a Board of Trustees appointed by the Queensland Government and managed by an Executive Group responsible for the operations and the achievement of the Centre's strategic priorities.
