The Foundation provides workshops and opportunities to encourage the growth of a local arts community and to support local career paths for people in the Arts disciplines.

We provide financial assistance, with funds raised at the annual Boonah Bookfest, to Boonah Library for whatever resources they require. Also to Boonah Regional Art Gallery with which we have a close working relationship.

The Boonah & District Cultural Foudation was created to widen knowledge, understanding and appreciation of artistic, creative and cultural needs and objectives in the community at large.

This includes the development of economic benefits to the district through cultural programs.

The Foundation is run entirely by volunteers. We are thankful for the support of members and community and encourage all to take part in our events.

We acknowledge the Traditional Owners, the Ugarapul and Yuggera peoples, of the land on which we live and work.  We pay our deepest respect to Elders past, present and continuing. We acknowledge their culture and creativity.

We celebrate individual and collective achievements and talents through inclusive festivals and activities. The Ritchies Boonah Arts Festival provides opportunities for community members of all ages to perform, enter competitions or attend workshops and entertaining events.
