Support Us


Music is a universal language, and has the power to transform experiences and transcend barriers. At QMF, we are proud to work with Queenslanders from all walks of life, providing opportunities to engage in projects that deliver important outcomes for individuals and communities. We know that music can help to create more inclusive, caring and connected communities in a number of ways: opportunities for youth engagement, providing a safe space for self-expression and the exploration of difficult issues, and fostering social cohesion and connectedness through shared experiences are just a few examples.

QMF projects also contribute to a strong and distinctive arts sector through commissioning new works, and nurturing the next generation of artists and artsworkers. Our work in communities would not be possible without the generous support of donors, foundations and partners. Each Festival, we must raise more than half our budget through donations, sponsorships and project funding. Please consider supporting our work in communities through a donation today.
