Thriving Arts, Thriving City

What’s the relationship between the Arts and the development of Rockhampton? Seven local artists, business and community leaders will lead a breakfast conversation with 100 community members on 8 September to discuss recent urban developments, Rockhampton’s waterfront and what is being done to revitalise, nurture, and further develop the city’s Arts and Cultural community.

Thriving Arts/Thriving City is the fourth in this year’s Breakfast on the Fitzroy series hosted by The Rockhampton Grammar School and Suncorp Bank.

Confirmed speakers include Andrew Beaumont – Central Queensland Property Developer; Mary Carroll – CEO Capricorn Enterprise; Tracy Cooper-Lavery – Director, Rockhampton Art Gallery; Russell Claus – Planning Manager, Rockhampton Regional Council; Bronwyn Fenech – FM Studios; Michael Robertson – Head of Dance, RGS Dance & Musical Theatre Academy; and Central Queensland Artist, Veronika Zeil.

Earlier this year the School and Suncorp presented Succeeding in business in Central Queensland in a challenging economic environment; Growing the next generation of CQ’s Agribusiness leaders; and The future of medical education in Central Queensland.

The event on 8 September is from 7.00am-8.30am. Tickets are $30 each and include a full hot and continental breakfast and beverages. Corporate tables of eight, for $200, are also available. Students’ art will be on display. Bookings must be made in advance by calling 4936 0600 or visiting
