The Gold Coast Art Festival, held in glorious parklands, showcases an array of creative output—painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, video, fashion, music, and more—from local, national, and international artists, ending in a multi-arts celebration. This year’s festival includes the inaugural Gold Coast Sculpture Symposium, brainchild of locals keen to enliven the area’s public spaces, who invited top sculptors to transform hunks of sandstone, granite, marble and wood into arresting artworks that will be gifted to the community. The festival will also host free workshops. Festival dates may change so check the website for updates.
