Our Benefactors

#Home is where the art is

Inspire, connect, discover.

We’d like to thank our generous benefactors for their ongoing support of arts on the Gold Coast.

Our benefactors are pioneers, champions and lovers of culture; they share our vision of a richer and deeper arts and cultural experience for the Gold Coast. With their support we make great things happen and can continue to inspire, connect and promote our community's love of the arts.
