Having reignited BEMAC’s program with a sensational series of concerts in the first half of 2023, we are thrilled to invite artists to once again submit proposals for shows in the second half of the year (July to December 2023) as part of our BEMAC Live and BEMAC Unplugged series.  

Extended: Submit your proposal by midnight Monday May 8

Three programming principles underpin the Program:

  • Courageous in creativity – We aim to support artists at all career and development stages, whose creative and professional aspirations are solidly grounded on the creation of original work of the highest quality and relevance possible.  
  • Determined in diversity – We aim to ensure that diverse stories, voices and expressions are duly represented and that they are embraced and welcomed into a platform of creativity, conversation and cross-pollination. 
  • Enablers of change – We aim to drive positive social change towards the elimination of racism, discrimination and exclusion by fostering self-determination and cultural safety with the agency to freely express. 

Invitations are now open! Submit your proposal by midnight Monday May 8


BEMAC Presents the Joe Geia Band, February 25, 2023

BEMAC Live is a professionally produced series of shows to be held at the Queensland Multicultural Centre, in Kangaroo Point, Brisbane. We are looking for proposals for new, original work that inspires and moves, in any performing art form including music, multi-arts, dance, theatre, film, etc. Our aim is to elevate diverse artists and their artistry. We are particularly excited by work that examines discourses and perceptions on multiculturalism, migration and identity, leveraging the arts as a platform in which to pose difficult questions, challenge entrenched ideas and enable change.

BEMAC Unplugged

BEMAC Unplugged: Sustainable Serenity, March 18, 2023

BEMAC Unplugged is a series of low-key shows that will showcase diverse talent and invite cross-cultural collaboration, in an intimate setting that aims to recreate the vibe of BEMAC’s shows at Yungaba. Each event will be curated by a guest artist and include a collaboration between three or more different artists.

Our 2023 program will include 3 BEMAC Unplugged shows. We are looking for a guest curator for each one of these shows. These will take place at the QMC in Kangaroo Point, Brisbane, in a relaxed format with minimal technical resources. The selected proposals will also include limited theatre access for a rehearsal toward the artistic collaboration.

For more information and to submit your EOI as a guest curator, click here.
