QCP Second Statement


Dear Friends,

Following our statement on Monday the 11th of November in relation to the announcement by the Queensland Government’s cut of triennial funding for the Queensland Centre for Photography from the start of 2014, we now have some news for you.

The QCP would like to inform the community that it has reached an agreement with its partners to maintain the QCP venue open till the end of April. This would allow us to fulfill the international program at the photo l.a. art fair in January 2014, three exhibition periods at the QCP venue, the biennial Queensland Festival of Photography in April 2014 and the companion conference Photography and Fictions.

In February we are launching the publication and exhibition of the 2013 Youngblood Editions artist Katherine Griffiths.

The QCP will continue in its efforts to find strategic partners and will keep you informed of outcomes.

Meantime your support for the programs and in particular the Queensland Festival of Photography and its conference will provide a case to sponsors and strategic partners on the community’s need for the services the QCP provides. We encourage you to participate.

If you would like to read more about these issues, here is a link to the first statement and some articles in CCAS Social Pages, ArtsHub, Excerpt Magazine blog and about cuts to youth arts.

The QCP Team.
