At Opera Queensland we’re extremely proud of our partnerships.
The support we receive from our partners plays a vital role in enabling us to produce work of the highest quality with the best local, national and international artists.
Our partnerships support programs that allow communities across rural, remote, regional and metropolitan Queensland to experience our wonderful art form through live and online performances, workshops and social events.
To celebrate our partners’ help in bringing people together to experience the joy of singing, we have launched a series of features to introduce our partnerships.
Our partnership with Emporium Hotel South Bank (EHSB) is based on a shared passion for the arts, in particular opera, and a deep belief that Brisbane is a great city with a thriving arts and culture program to offer locals and tourists.
EHSB is the result of the extraordinary vision of Fran and Anthony John who lead a team of respected professionals to ensure Australia’s most awarded luxury boutique hotel in the heart of South Bank always delivers exquisite experiences to their guests.
Phil Hancox, Director of Marketing and Communication at EHSB, shared an update on how he and the team at EHSB are responding to COVID-19.
Our Hotel is open and functioning in terms of its accommodation but we have had to re-imagine our food and beverage outlets and the offerings they provide. We have made the changes to our food and beverage services with care and innovation.
The power of working collaboratively as a team through difficult times and the creative output that can come from that.
Holiday at the beach, go to the cinema, go to the gym and eat at a restaurant.
The atmosphere and the tangible energy in the theatre. I miss sharing the experience with an audience of like-minded people filled with the same joy.
The Marketing Team has a weekly zoom meeting dedicated to ‘bring your dog to work day’ and within the broader organisation we have a ‘check in’ with more than 100 of our team, some of whom aren’t currently working due to the COVID-19 situation. This check in has been important for people’s mental health and keeping everyone feeling connected.
