Our Vision

OUR VISION

To capture your imagination.

To be the Gold Coast’s home of arts and culture.

Gathering place that locals love, and visitors must see.

To offer inspiration, discovery and connection.

HOTA—where art meets life 

Surrounded by parklands and a lake with Surfers Paradise as the backdrop, Home of the Arts is your place for live performances, lake-side strolls, star-gazing, cinema-watching, art and new-ideas. There’s a unique outdoor stage for live events and a refreshed cafe for relaxing and connecting. Plus, all your favourites, like our cinemas, theatres and gallery.

Discover art—indoors and out. HOTA is that kind of place—where art meets life.

We believe life is more exciting offline and at HOTA we offer real events, real people and real experiences.

Real events, real people, real experiences 

We’re opening our doors to artists. We believe art thrives when there is collaboration, mentorship and shared ideas.

Community, conversation and creativity 

HOTA’s brand-spanking new outdoor stage is like no other. It’s at the heart of HOTA and will be a magnet for world-class artists. We believe in community, conversation and creativity, so when we’re not presenting amazing live performances, we’ll bring the parklands alive. Experience dance or yoga on the green, parkrun around the lake and our popular Sunday farmer’s markets, all in one place.

Create, watch, learn, do. Be.

We’re now the home to the Gold Coast Film Festival, and are working with The Farm, Bleached Arts and The Walls. We offer freedom, space and time to make something different. And there are more opportunities to come.

HOTA is the home for all things creative. A home that brings people together where ideas are transformed into real life experiences. A place where art makes the world a better place.

Our future is bright

We’re building momentum for a richer, deeper arts and culture experience for the Gold Coast. There’s so much more to come at HOTA, Home of the Arts.
