CONSULTATION | Creativity & Science Partnerships

by Linda Carroli

As a voluntary representative on the state government’s Ministerial Regional Community Forum for the Greater Brisbane Region, I am able to work on research and proposals that will be of some benefit to the community. The Greater Brisbane committee is working across a range of issues including environment, non-profit organisations, housing and carers. We undertake community consultation and present proposals and reports.

As one of 12 forum members, I’ve endeavoured to raise issues about the arts and cultural sector. I’ve proposed that, as part of the government’s commitment to climate change, some resourcing be allocated to creativity and science partnerships via the activities of the Climate Change Centre of Excellence. My proposal will be presented to Forum 30 on 26 November 2007. Presenting proposals and reports to the Forum is the equivalent of presenting them to the government. The Forum is a point of interface between government (meaning ministers, not public service) and the community.
