Continuing Success with Young Artist Development Program

Young Artist Development Program

Residencies, workshops and masterclasses for young artists that span the visual and performing arts.

Following their long-established role in fostering youth development in the arts, this year the Friends have been delighted to be able to contribute $20,000 to support all activities of The Arts Centre Gold Coast for youth program initiatives. This ongoing support provides development opportunities for many young Gold Coast artists to participate, learn and excel in all areas of the arts and we look forward to the usual high standard of presentations by our young Gold Coast artists throughout the year.

In 2015 the highlights of the program are:

  • Photography Immersion days
  • Indigenous Student Immersion Day
  • Energies Student Immersion and
  • The Summer Series

Donations from the Friends have also supported:

  • The Listies
  • What’s up Croc?
  • Kelly
  • Marlin and
  • JUAWS Photography Awards 2015.
  • People’s Choice Award of the GC City Art Prize
