Your Right to Information
The Queensland Art Gallery is making it easier for you to access information about us. This includes information about our policies, codes of conduct, financial records, correspondence, registers and documents relating to some Gallery decisions.
The Right to Information is the Queensland Government's approach to giving the community greater access to information.
The Queensland Government has made a commitment to provide access to information held by the Government — including the Queensland Art Gallery — unless on balance it is contrary to the public interest to provide that information.
New legislation replacing the Freedom of Information Act 1992 came into effect on 1 July 2009, namely:
The Right to Information reforms aim to make more information available, provide equal access to information across all sectors of the community, and provide appropriate protection for individuals' privacy.
We’re making it easier to access information about the Gallery, our services, finances, policies, registers and lists, as well as information released through Right to Information (RTI) requests.
There are several options available to access this information, you can:
- Check to see if the information you're looking for is already available from:
- Contact us on 07 3840 7288 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if the information is not already available. We'll help determine if the information is accessible through an administrative release process, or we'll advise if you need to make an RTI request to access it.
If you need to make an RTI request, you can access the information by making an RTI application online or by downloading an application form and submitting it by fax or in person.
Information requested and released through the Right to Information (RTI) process, is made available to the public through our disclosure log.
In our disclosure log you will find details of non-personal information released under the Right to Information Act 2009 that has a wider public interest.
The Right to Information Act 2009 came into effect from 1 July 2009, and at this time our disclosure log does not contain any requested information. Our disclosure log will be updated as information is released under the RTI process.
Our publication scheme describes and categorises the information routinely available from the Gallery. It has been developed to give the community greater access to information.
As Queensland’s premier visual arts institution, the Gallery is committed to the Queensland Government’s open data initiative to make government data freely and broadly accessible for the benefit of all Queenslanders. Data created by the Gallery, particularly about its Collection and exhibitions, has potential to be of value to the public, to researchers and to arts and cultural industries. For further information:
