“My career started at Metro. My first full time job, my first professional directing job, the first play I ever wrote, the first company I ever ran. All roads lead back to Metro. Metro gave me a start 30 years ago and I want to give back. I invite you to become an Art Starter and join me in helping to support the start of new work and new art careers here in Brisbane.”

Wesley Enoch, Metro Arts Patron

Metro Arts is in the art starting business. After all ‘art starts here’.

For an annual tax deductible donation of $500 you can join our donor group, ART STARTERS, and help fund our annual Creative Development Program

The program gives artists space, time and support to develop creative ideas and test them with industry professionals and peers. Creative development can advance to local, national and international stages.


2020 Creative Development Program


As one of our Art Starters you’ll experience and learn about the creative process first-hand at special behind the scenes previews and get-togethers.
