We are so very honoured to announce three sponsors for our forthcoming Brisbane season.
First to come onboard was Oblong+Son, graphic artists based in Newstead. The people at Oblong believe that “design is central to making our future sustainable, from communication to industrial design to urban planning and architecture. We also believe that progress towards a sustainable future is closely tied to the fight for social justice.”
Next to join the team was the New Globe Theatre, 220 Brunswick Street, Fortitude Valley. With a grand and glorious history – check out their website for the lowdown – “What makes [New Globe Theatre] unique is the fact that it can be a multi-media venue. It’s got potential for theatre, cinema, music, all kinds of the arts are covered, and it is being utilised for that.”
And now, we can announce that the Queensland Brain Institute, specifically the Clem Jones Centre for Ageing Dementia Research, at the University of Queensland, has joined us as our Premier Sponsor.
Since opening less than two years ago, CJCADR scientists have made significant headway in dissecting neurodegenerative diseases, with exciting developments including earlier diagnosis using MRI and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease using ultrasound technology. The centre is one of the world’s larger centres focussed solely on research into the prevention and treatment of dementia.
Dame June Bloom has welcomed the CJCADR onboard with the comment “Yes, because I sincerely hope they get there before I do.”
