About BEMAC

BEMAC produces & stages multicultural artists from different cultural backgrounds.

As a registered charity and a subsidiary of SSI’s self-funded Arts and Culture program, BEMAC provides a platform for innovative multicultural arts in Queensland. We believe that the voices of Australia’s diverse artists enrich our culture and should be heard by everyone.

How we help

1. We stage ground-breaking art and music productions by artists from diverse cultural backgrounds.
2. We champion diverse artists and build skills through free artistic development programs.
3. We build an inclusive community around diverse arts by bringing people together.

Our principles

  • 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.

How to get involved

BEMAC’s inspiring and distinct lineup of passionate artists explores the depths of identity, migration, and multiculturalism. With courage, determination, and the desire to enable change, BEMAC sets the stage for a truly transformative experience.
