“I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with the 2021 Creative Business Champions program. As someone new to the field of arts partnerships and fundraising, my CBC was extremely helpful and an invaluable resource to begin this chapter of my career. The work I undertook via the CBC program really broadened my professional horizons, particularly in identifying grant opportunities both within and outside of the traditional arts sector. I would highly recommend the program for anyone looking to connect with experts in their respective fields across Queensland.” Chad Calderon, Bleach Festival
