IBA supports Indigenous art development in Townsville

The purchase of the Holiday Inn Townsville has allowed Indigenous Business Australia(IBA) to involve Indigenous groups in various aspects of the hotel redevelopment.

IBA General Manager Ron Morony, said that one of the outcomes that IBA wants to achieve is to generate and support employment, training and business development opportunities within the region.

“IBA approached Umbrella Studio, a Townsville based not-for-profit contemporary arts organisation, to commission artwork for the recently purchased 200 room Townsville icon.”

The commission involves the production of a series of approximately 276 limited edition works on paper that will be installed as part of the refurbishment process of the Hotel.
