ACT Projects and Initiatives

Arts Council Toowoomba is a very active organisation, working hard to showcase the creativity in our region. Since our beginnings in early 2006, we have designed and delivered projects and opportunities for artists. Our projects help to develop interest and participation in the Arts throughout our Region.

In 2006 the inaugural annual Great Toowoomba Postcard Project began. Postcards showcased local artists’ work in a limited edition pack of 6 postcards. These are still available tourists, art lovers and businesses for corporate gifts.  Postcard projects in 2010 included children’s artworks and in 2011 ACT members.

See the Merchandise page for samples of these postcards.

In 2007, in addition to the Postcard project, we started AVANT GARDEN to our project list.

In 2013 we launched the Splashing back! mosaic art trail to great acclaim. In 2014 we built on the suggestions of Fire and Rescue authority and delivered ACT Waterways to increase community awareness of our creeks.

At our Inaugural Members Exhibition ‘What is Blue to you?’ at the Toowoomba Regional Art Gallery 25 artists in varing fields worked specifically to the theme, creating new and exciting work. The second members exhibition ‘impACT’ was even stronger and in 2014 ‘compACT’ showcased small works which looked fabulous in the atrium.

Entry to ACT events and activities is open to all ACT members unless they are a part of a judging/selection panel. An ACT member on a judging/selection panel cannot enter that particular event, activity or competition, so as to avoid any conflict of interest.
