Straight Out of Brisbane Festival Inc. is a not-for-profit organisation incorporated under Queensland law.
The stated aim of the festival under its constitution is "to organise a festival for young, emerging and independent artists in south-east Queensland." A short discussion of our mission and philosophies is outlined here .
The organisation is managed by a Management Committee elected by SOOB's members at our Annual General Meeting. 2003's committee consisted of Louise Terry, Susan Kukucka and Ben Eltham. Nominations for the 2004 Management Committee, to be elected at our AGM, will open shortly.
Financial management of Straight Out of Brisbane is carried out by the Management Committee, particularly the Treasurer. SOOB has an ABN and the mysterious IA number that non-profit associations are given in Queensland instead of an ACN.
Anyone interested in SOOB is welcome to join the organisation and can then participate in the management of the festival through voting at AGM's and attending Management Committee meetings.
SOOB's financial reports for our financial year ending March 2003 have been audited by Brian Tucker CPA and are available from SOOB Management on request.
