The Boonah and District Cultural Foundation offers workshops, exhibitions, concerts, competitions, performances and fun activities that provide great entertainment and opportunities for the local community to develop and show their talents.

Arts and culture contribute significantly to the economic vitality of a community. Cultural events, festivals, and artistic initiatives attract tourists, bolstering the local economy through increased business for restaurants, shops, and accommodation. Additionally, a thriving arts scene can attract creative professionals, fostering innovation and contributing to the development of a dynamic and resilient local economy.

Arts and culture are integral to the vitality of a community, offering social, economic, educational, and well-being benefits that create a richer and more interconnected society. Investing in and supporting the arts is an investment in the holistic development and sustainability of a community.
