BEMAC is recognised in Australia as the heart of multicultural arts in Queensland through the development, presentation and promotion of the artistic value, cultural and social worth and commercial potential of diverse multicultural arts and artists.

On the 3rd June 2012, BEMAC achieved a milestone 25 years of engaging, identifying, developing, promoting and presenting artists from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds and performers of world music. This business plan outlines a new strategic direction for the organisation which not only values that 25 years of experience, but draws on that experience and knowledge to steer the organisation into the next 25 years.

At the core of BEMAC’s philosophical position is the recognition that diversity of cultures and communities actively contributes to Australian life and therefore supports the practice of culturally diverse art in the context of its cultural background contributing to quality outcomes and a richer and more vibrant cultural life for all Queenslanders.
