Brisbane Multicultural Arts Centre (BEMAC) is Queensland's multicultural arts program for the development, presentation and promotion of culturally diverse arts and artists. BEMAC is committed to delivering arts led practice that unifies and creates a harmonious community, promotes a sense of belonging and builds community confidence and resilience. In 2015, BEMAC formed a ground-breaking alliance with Access Community Services Ltd that combines the creative capital of BEMAC and the strategic organisational capacity of Access.
This partnership has created the platform for BEMAC to become recognised as a national and international leader in multicultural arts with settlement playing a pivotal role in building social cohesion. BEMAC is recognised nationally as the heart of multicultural arts in Queensland through the development, presentation and promotion of the artistic value, cultural and social work and commercial potential of diverse multicultural arts and artists. BEMAC aims to transform arts led practice in Queensland by creating opportunities to positively contribute to the settlement journey of refugees and migrants.
