Arts Organisations Triennial Funding Program

Our Arts Organisations Triennial Funding Program provides funding to Gold Coast based arts and cultural organisations over 2022–2024.

The Program aims to strategically grow the local arts and culture sector by supporting emerging and established arts and cultural organisations to develop new work, entrepreneurship, artistic excellence and cultural leadership.

Funding supports a diverse local arts sector; raising the profile of arts in our city; growing audiences’ engagement with the arts and building local creative employment. The program also helps arts organisations develop sustainable businesses.

2022–24 funding recipients

We have invested $2.1 million into 12 organisations over the 3 years ($700,000 per year).
