The Australian Festival of Chamber Music acknowledges the Traditional Owners and Custodians of Townsville – the Wulgurukaba of Gurambilbarra and Yunbenun; and Bindal people. We pay our respects to their cultures, their ancestors and their Elders – past and present – and all future generations. We recognise and value the integral role Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people play in our creative and artistic endeavours.
AFCM has a rich history and legacy in Townsville-Gurambilbarra and throughout the region.
Discover more about our integrated approach to community engagement, education and chamber music and explore our past Festivals' programs.
AFCM IN THE COMMUNITY
Through our AFCM Winterschool International Masterclasses, AFCM Outreach Program tours, the Festival Garden and Accessibility programs, we are proud to work closely with the communities in our region.
We continue to engage with our regional cultural partners, schools and performers alongside our Festival artists, to deliver an integrated offering to our visiting and local audiences.
For over 30 years AFCM has been creating opportunities for musicians across regional North Queensland.
None of this would be possible without our donors and partners, sharing in our vision for transformative chamber music in the tropics.
