Following an application for funding through the National Performing Arts Partnership Framework, Brisbane’s La Boite Theatre has been recognised as Queensland’s seventh major arts organisation.

The news came via Creative Australia and Arts Queensland.

The Framework, administered by Creative Australia, provides a cohesive, collaborative national approach to sustainable arts funding, guiding effective decision-making for the sector. Organisations which are a part of this Framework benefit from the stability of up to eight years of funding, with the first stage of La Boite’s partnership beginning in 2025 and running to 2028.

This investment from both state and federal governments acknowledges La Boite for its leadership, and significant contribution to Queensland’s arts sector.

It’s a huge moment for Australia’s oldest continuously-running professional theatre company. It enters the Framework on the eve of its 100th anniversary in 2025.

“A century-old company is not just a business entity; it’s a living testament to human ingenuity, ambition, determination, and the power of collective effort, for which the Queensland Government via Arts Queensland and the Australian Government via Creative Australia have been instrumental,” Chair of the La Boite board Adam Brunes says.

“The confidence and security provided by this vital funding will ensure that La Boite is best positioned to make a significant cultural, social and economic contribution to the Australian community for another 100 years.”

scenestr is proud to have enjoyed an ongoing media partnership with La Boite Theatre, working with them every step of the way for 25 years. We congratulate all involved for this recognition.
