Flying Arts Alliance is a Queensland-based not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the vision of a creative life for all Queenslanders.
Flying Arts was born from one man’s vision to bring quality visual arts experiences to the bush. In 1971, Mervyn Moriarty, the founder of Flying Arts, invested his earnings from a significant art prize in flying lessons, and took to the skies to teach his craft. Over 46 years later, this legacy continues.
Today, Flying Arts works to remove the barriers that prevent access to the arts. By establishing stronger connections to and within communities, the arts have a proven ability to improve overall wellbeing, stimulate economic activity, build resilience and revitalize communities. Our impact as an organisation can be felt across the state, and indeed, much further afield.
Join us as we continue to inspire and support those who need us most. Together, we can foster a fertile and nurturing environment for Queensland artists, educators, schools, youth and communities to experience, appreciate and develop within the visual arts.
Flying Arts embraces a spirit of adventure to inspire the appreciation, practice and professional development of the visual arts as a lifetime interest or career aspiration, and a creative life for all Queenslanders.
We provide equitable and affordable access to high quality arts and cultural services, especially for those with limited access, to embed visual arts within the social fabric of the personal, professional and community life of Queenslanders, to contribute to a thriving and resourceful State.
