What's happening in Queensland?

Upbeat Arts engages, educates and empowers adults experiencing any form of mental illness (or any disadvantage or marginalisation) in Queensland by offering access to tailored arts programs which assist in creating pathways to well-being, education and employment.

In Queensland, we hold 5 arts programs per week:

  • Three in South Brisbane - choir, creative writing and song writing
  • One choir in North Brisbane
  • One online creative writing program for residents of Queensland.

Click on the PROGRAM INFORMATION button below to head straight to information about each program currently available.



Our programs are held in venues with public transport nearby. Venue details are provided to members on confirmation of your program.

Members can attend at no cost - however we ask applicants to include on the application form, basic details of their mental health diagnosis and information about who is supporting them. This might be a clinician from Queensland Health, a support worker from a non-government mental health service, or details of support being received from another mental health, disability or drugs and alcohol support service. There's an option to include their medical professional or GP if not working with any of the above. Refer to our application form for all the details.


Upbeat Arts is committed to continuing to provide our arts programs in Brisbane. With changing health directions, we may have to amend the way we deliver our programs. Our members are kept up to date at all times. 

Please note any interaction with the general public poses an elevated risk of being exposed to COVID-19 and we cannot guarantee that you will not be exposed while attending our programs. You should seek your own medical advice prior to attending, and consider your individual situation.
