The performing arts has the ability to transcend the barriers of age, language and culture. It builds community identity and fosters diversity, tolerance and free expression - not to mention, bringing a great deal of enjoyment.
Our mission at Caleda Productions is to enable and deliver accessible arts and cultural experiences in regional Queensland and create bridges to career pathways for local emerging artists.

Leanne has a passion for engaging the community through music and performance, creating a strong sense of connectedness and belonging, and bringing people together across age, culture and ability.
