Level Up

The City of Gold Coast’s youth arts incubator program Level Up aims to engage emerging young artists transitioning from school, work or tertiary studies to a career in the creative industries sector on the Gold Coast.

It will provide a unique opportunity for emerging young artists to take their arts practice to the next level and be a part of the city’s vibrant cultural landscape.

Gold Coast Youth Plan 2020

Gold Coast Youth Plan 2020 - A plan to embrace our young potential was adopted by Council on 18 October 2016.

The Plan was presented to Council by 2015 Junior Mayor Zuzana and 2016 Junior Mayor William. The Plan provides a strategic framework for the delivery of City services to the growing number of young people living in the city.

Take a look at the video:

Young people make an invaluable contribution to the city. In 2014, there were 106,197 young people between the ages of 10 and 24 living on the Gold Coast, representing almost 20 per cent of the total population. The City provides infrastructure like skate, BMX, and park facilities, and delivers many programs and activities for young people in our community centres, libraries, and parks.

We're also committed to hearing young people’s thoughts and ideas through year-round youth engagement programs, encouraging young people to share their unique perspectives and fresh insights.
