Brisbane Airport Corporation & Robert Brownhall

Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) is the third-largest airport in Australia by passenger numbers and contributes more than $1.2 million in sponsorship and philanthropic donations each year in support of more than 100 local initiatives and charities. BAC’s aim when engaging KDPR was to further its long-term commitment to the arts that would create a legacy of nurturing and supporting local artists.  As Brisbane rapidly becomes known as a cultural capital BAC recognised its role to play in this and invested heavily in the arts scene.
