With a focus on ideas, research and development, this new precinct will be a game-changer for arts and culture on the Gold Coast.
Not only will the precinct be home to Placemakers* and BLEACH*, it will also be the HQ for our resident companies – The Farm, SWELL Sculpture Festival, Shock Therapy, Corrina Bonshek & Collaborators and Levinge Events. You can read more about them and their work below.
With support from the City of Gold Coast, the State Government, through Arts Queensland, and the Sidney Myer Foundation, we’ve created a suite of fit-for-purpose studio spaces for the Resident Companies to incubate ideas, make new work, and collaborate.
Corrina Bonshek & Collaborators
Corrina Bonshek & Collaborators is a newly formed not-for-profit company led by composer and artistic director Corrina Bonshek whose passions are intercultural dialogue and making music-led works that provoke wonder, joy at the beauty of nature.
Levinge Events is a local Kombumerri First Nations owned and operated company offering opportunities, mentoring, skills development and support for all aboriginal people and their culture – the coming together of expression in many forms of technical, contemporary and cultural art.
Shock Therapy’s vision is to create Transformative Arts Experiences. We do this through telling stories that explore what it is to be human – provocative, challenging, uplifting, impactful.
SWELL Sculpture Festival
SWELL Sculpture Festival (SWELL) is a multifaceted not for profit arts organisation based on the Gold Coast, Queensland. Stimulating creative thinking, improving happiness and health of artists and audiences, SWELL activates storytelling in physical and digital spaces, driving social change, connecting communities, and strengthening social cohesion.
