Arts & Culture

The Southern Gold Coast is home to a unique artistic and cultural scene. Inspired by the relaxed, coastal lifestyle, many artists, sculptors, photographers and creatives call the Southern Gold Coast home. 

From art and cultural events, to independent galleries, markets and cafes, art transfuses the landscape of the Southern Gold Coast, and can be found in its own form in each of the eight distinct villages. 

The new Level Up studio + gallery at The Strand at Coolangatta is a one of a kind community arts space designed to provide access to art experiences for young people and adults within the local community. Through art workshops, artist talks, networking events and an exciting exhibition program, the gallery is helping nurture the creative community on the Southern Gold Coast and beyond.
