In recent years QPAC has established itself as a major Australian producer of large entrepreneurial ventures, educational activities and community programs. QPAC is also a performance home to some of the state’s leading performing arts companies including Queensland Theatre, Queensland Ballet, The Queensland Orchestra and Opera Queensland.
A significant part of the Centre's operation is the hiring of the four auditoria and ancillary areas.
What we spend and how we spend it
QPAC relies on both its commercial activities and government funding. Government grants support facilities and infrastructure costs and core programming activities. Commercial revenue is raised through venue hire, entrepreneurial programming, catering and ancillary income streams.
