The Arts Centre Gold Coast

Australia / The Pacific

The Arts Centre Gold Coast is the city’s premier cultural facility, bringing visual and performing arts to the region. More than 700,000 people attend 6,000 events here annually including theatrical productions, exhibitions, film screenings, education programs and workshops.Evandale was first identified as the preferred location for an arts and cultural centre in the late 1960s. The resulting facility was opened more than twenty years later by then Governor of Queensland, Sir Walter Campbell (1921-2004), on 6 December 1986 and named after a previous Gold Coast Mayor, Keith Hunt. The building has seen a number of additions including the Arts Café in 1996, and a cinema, two function rooms and an administration area in 2004. Part of the Cultural Precinct, the Gold Coast City Gallery is one of Australia’s most prominent regional public galleries and serves a population of approximately 500,000. Opened in 1986 the gallery houses the renowned City Collection of contemporary and historical artworks documenting the character of the Gold Coast as well as the development of Australian art practice.
