According to Screen Queensland CEO Kylie Munnich, the response to COVID-19 has been driven by discussion between the agency, the board and an industry task force set up for that purpose. The strategy builds on a screen industry survey which had more than 560 responses.
Unsurprisingly, some of the agencies response is fast and specific. The existing sqhub program provides a co-working space, access to courses and a business incubation program run by 113 Partners and designed for the broad creative community. It has now gone online, suspended the costs associated with the shuttered physical space and put the incubation program on the net, to be run at six monthly intervals into the future.
