Arts and cultural development on the Gold Coast is progressive and ever-changing. We regularly re-evaluate our programs and priorities to reflect this vibrant and exciting time.
The Culture Strategy 2023 sets a vision for our city where culture is central to our community wellbeing, our city's reputation and liveability, and our economic growth.
Our Public Art Plan delivers a distinct vision for public art additions to our city to engage, excite and inspire our locals and visitors alike.
The Music Action Plan envisions a vibrant, creative city, where artists and the music industry are valued and provided with opportunities to develop sustainable careers while continuing to live on the Coast.
We are committed to valuing and elevating our rich Indigenous culture and heritage. We aim to support local artists and instigate initiatives that develop and promote Indigenous arts and culture on the Coast.
We support the creative and professional development of our local artists and cultural industries by delivering regular arts and cultural opportunities, including workshops, programs, networking events and more.
