Connecting communities through culture, Placemakers* Gold Coast are changing the way we engage with art, and our city. They are also the creative agency behind the city’s most exciting annual contemporary arts festival, Bleach*.
Placemakers* Gold Coast are a uniquely qualified group of creatives who are pushing the boundaries to connect artists, organisations and communities. They are famed for their transformational experiences, pop-up performances and artistic installations that provide a deep connection to place and enrich community life.
Previous work includes a sold-out series of Opera on the Beach in partnerships with Opera Australia, and cool collaborations with QT Gold Coast and Peppers Soul to deliver the quirky arts experience, Hotelling.
Placemakers* Gold Coast have created programs for Tourism Australia conferences, and shone a light on the 2018 Commonwealth Games Athletes Welcoming Ceremony. Their productions have won the Sydney Myer Group Award in 2019 and the Helpmann Award in 2018 for Tide in collaboration with The Farm.
It goes to say, if you’re working on an upcoming project or development, be sure to talk to talk to Placemakers* Gold Coast about how you can connect and embed the voice of the community into your endeavour.
Everybody wins when arts and culture have a seat at the table.
