Queensland Ballet’s Forever Fund is our Endowment fund that will ensure Queensland Ballet continues to thrive and sustain its impact for the community long into the future.
The Forever Fund marks the beginning of the next phase of Queensland Ballet’s journey, one that is steeped in sustainability, innovation and legacy.
The Forever Fund will provide security and stability to our talented artists and arts workers, enable innovation and growth, and ensure QB continues to thrive and sustain its impact for generations to come.
A profound legacy, meticulously crafted by Calleija, with the unwavering mission to support Queensland Ballet.
A gift dedicated to making a lasting impact for generations of artists to come.
Hope Soaring is an astonishing example of master craftsmanship; a one of a kind piece featuring 60 Argyle Pink Diamonds™ that represent Queensland Ballet’s 48 company artists and 12 young artists.
The design symbolises Li Cunxin’s story, when as a child Li spent rare and precious time with his father, making and flying kites. They carried his hopes and dreams, carefully written in messages tied to their tails, up toward the clouds.
In Li’s final year as Artistic Director of Queensland Ballet, Calleija has donated this beautiful piece to Queensland Ballet. All proceeds from the auction of Hope Soaring will be donated to Queensland Ballet’s Forever Fund – an endowment fund established to sustain the company well into the future.
