CIAF growing future of Arts Workers

15 April 2021

CIAF’s commitment to artistic excellence is expanding, focusing on the careers of those in the arts industry who work behind the scenes. We are happy to introduce our new trainees under The Evolution Project: Catherine, Ebony and Luke (L-R).

Supported by the Queensland Government’s Department of Employment, Small Business & Training (forming part of the Skilling Queenslanders for Work initiative), The Evolution Project is a 6 month paid traineeship. Our trainees will learn all facets of event management and what it takes to deliver a national, annual art event, culminating in a Certificate I in Business.
