What is HOTA Homegrown?

HOTA Homegrown. You can’t be a home for art without artists.  And we particularly love our homegrown Gold Coast artists and creatives. We believe art thrives when there is collaboration, mentorship and shared ideas.

We’re sharing our home with Gold Coast Film Festival and are working with The Farm and Supercell amongst others. We provide opportunities for artists to meet, collaborate and learn from some of the amazing national and international artists who visit us and we regularly commission work.

#Sharing our Home

We’re sharing our home with Gold Coast Film Festival and are working with The Farm and Supercell amongst others. We provide opportunities for artists to meet, collaborate and learn from some of the amazing national and international artists who visit us and we regularly commission work.

Funding is also available to local artists through our annual Creative Development program and in early 2020 our Rage Against the V(irus) fund was a quickfire response to supporting artists during challenging times. We’ve also set up an Artist Pass to make coming to HOTA more affordable for artists.

We offer the freedom, space and time to make something different. And there are more opportunities to come.


#Our Home Companies

Gold Coast Film Festival

The Gold Coast Film Festival’s purpose is to bring film to life in a distinctly Gold Coast way for local and visiting audiences and to help grow and support Queensland’s screen industry.

The Farm

Based on the Gold Coast in Queensland Australia, The Farm is a collective of dance and theatre artists who enjoy collaboration as a way to make performance art.

Supercell: Festival of Contemporary Dance

In 2021, we’re proud to welcome Supercell to the Gold Coast and HOTA. Australia’s only annual contemporary dance festival, Supercell has collaborated with Gold Coast artists from the festival’s inception in 2017 and are dedicated to creating critical mass around Queensland dance.
