Creative Industries

The Australian Government recognises that a competitive creative industries sector is vital to Australia's prosperity - that a creative nation is a productive nation. The government's long history of support for arts and culture has enabled many artistic and cultural communities to prosper. Both State and local government agencies are working hard to sustain creative businesses and talent. Growing the creative industries in Townsville is a two-year collaboration between Townsville City Council, James Cook University, and Creative Industry members.

The video below showcases key locations and creative projects across the region, as part of the Screen Locations Guide launched in 2016. We want to thank Lior Cohen from Visual Reflection and his team for creating the video. It is a great example of local talent at work.
