corporate partnerships

Become a corporate partner and join us to journey towards fostering our vision to enrich our place and lives through culture-led experiences.

Placemakers* Gold Coast partners with organisations and individuals who share our values of nurturing community through culture-led, place-based experiences.

We work with a range of organisations from the arts, corporate and not for profit sector to co-create outcomes that benefit all parties, especially the communities we work in.

Those benefits extend far beyond financial or promotional value, to enrich the social, cultural and environmental fabric of our lives and communities.

We seek mutually fulfilling partnerships that cater to organisational and individual needs and aspirations. The process of placemaking is a journey we undertake together; one that that uplifts the cultural capacities and life experiences of all.

Placemakers* Gold Coast offers a range of internships, volunteering opportunities and more. Find out how you can work with our vibrant team.


We partner with Griffith University to offer year-round opportunities across areas such as administration, management, production, technical or marketing.

If you are not a Griffith University student, we welcome you to register your interest here.


BLEACH* Ambassadors are an essential part of our team and we love people who are passionate about supporting Arts and Culture on the Gold Coast.  If this sounds like you we are currently recruiting for a fabulous team of 2020 festival BLEACH* Ambassadors.

The Role:

Welcome Festival Patrons, offering information about What’s on and assisting with program information.

Provide a welcome smile and assist festival patrons with registration. Assist the Front of House crew with welcoming and seating of patrons.

This role also includes collecting surveys & voting forms, water, sunscreen and hand sanitiser runs, general help and putting on a welcome smile.

Our BLEACH* Ambassador role is predominately customer service focused with some assistance and general help and support for set up and pack down of various elements of the Festival site where required.

Some lifting and other walking tasks will be part of the role including standing for periods of time.  Our Festival has a COVID Safe Plan and will be operating under this guideline.  We would encourage people to apply who are happy to be in close proximity to the general public and very conscious of working with the guidelines we will need to operate in this year. 

We value your time and support of our annual festival.  Without our ambassadors the show wouldn’t go on! 

With this in mind we honour your contribution with a honorarium fee to help say thanks.
