Connect and inspire your community through stories and ideas. Become a Chapter One ambassador.

UPLIT is an organisation for all Queenslanders. We aim to eliminate barriers of engagement.

We believe that anyone should be able to connect with our programs and are passionate about keeping them accessible and inclusive.

Your support as a Chapter One Ambassador will enable us to achieve the following*:

  • ensure 30% of all events continue to be provided for free
  • capture, digitise and share sessions and events with more communities through online platforms
  • provide AUSLAN interpreters at UPLIT events to support our highly engaged hearing impaired audience

Chapter One Ambassadors are leaders and role models for generations of readers to come. To support and grow this inspiring network, we bring Chapter One Ambassadors together several times a year for special events and opportunities to visit the Artist Greenroom during the Festival.
