Bleach* Farewell’s Louise Bezzina

Posted on Thursday, January 31, 2019

Louise Bezzina, the creator of Bleach*, The Gold Coast Festival, has announced her retirement from the iconic festival in May 2019 to take up the role of Artistic Director of Brisbane Festival.

Bleach* began as a small pilot project of Connecting Southern Gold Coast, and, in eight years, has grown to become the signature festival of the Gold Coast, with a national reputation for making art with a strong connection to people and place.

She was also instrumental in securing and producing the inaugural Opera on the Beach with Opera Australia in 2014 held at Greenmount Beach.

Louise has played an exceptional role in the Gold Coast's cultural development - particularly that of the Southern Gold Coast - and leaves behind a significant legacy for the city.
