Festival Committee

PolArt 2018 Brisbane is a not-for-profit entity and is responsibly managed by a committee comprised of enthusiastic and dedicated volunteers.

We bring together a range of skills and qualifications from our professional careers as well as longstanding experience in organising Polish community events and festivals.

The Festival is financed by the generosity of corporate sponsors, the Polish community, government and private grants with all money raised used to pay for the costs incurred in staging the Festival.

All contribution is on a voluntary basis and any profit made from the Festival will support the running of future PolArt festivals.

Our wish is to enrich the broad community through the artistic and cultural programs of PolArt 2018 Brisbane, thus leaving a lasting legacy for future Australian generations.
