Opening in 2012, this purpose built facility was established to promote unity in our society and a sense of belonging for all. Intercultural communications, understanding and an appreciation of diversity can be strengthened by sharing our cultural background and QMC provides the perfect space to do so. With a large range of spaces available to suit both community and corporate needs, QMC welcomes the opportunity for people to celebrate and share their diversity through performance and arts.
QMC operates one large theatre performance space and a number of function spaces and multi-purpose rooms suitable for a range of events, meetings and seminars. The venue also features a kitchen, box office and bar. Located within the prominent inner city suburb of Kangaroo Point, QMC partners with a number of organisations in the precinct to offer customised event solutions in a range of areas including, professional technical services, competitive accommodation, ticketing management, photography, videography and more.
This state of the art facility is managed by the Brisbane Multicultural Arts Centre (BEMAC), an organisation with over 25 years of experience delivering arts and cultural services to and for the multicultural and arts sector. BEMAC’s mission is to be “recognised nationally 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”.
"I’ve used QMC for film screenings – probably a dozen times over the last 3 years – and I just love this venue! Its proximity to public transport (especially by ferry), its great foyer, bar and kitchen facilities, not to mention the cinema itself, are all first class! The staff are friendly and accommodating and the whole experience is a joy. Check it out next time you’re looking for a cinema or stage in Brisbane"
"The Queensland Multicultural Centre is the ideal venue for our test candidates and those attending our workshops. We find the management and staff are always available and supportive. We often suggest QMC as an ideal venue to other organisations."
"We were super-impressed with the venue for the workshop - absolutely perfect for our needs, all the AV equipment worked flawlessly and it gave our event the professional touch we have been looking for."
"QMC has a wonderful atmosphere that embraces people of all cultures. The staff are helpful and knowledgeable of the skills required to host high quality events. QMC is a well maintained venue of excellence in the heart of the city"
