The Sunshine Coast is home to a thriving arts community. The natural beauty and connectivity of the region makes it a wonderful place for artists to live and practice. In 2018, the council launched a 20 year vision for the arts and developed the region’s first Arts Plan.

To achieve this, one of four goals in the plan is to create a dedicated network of places and spaces for artists to connect, create and collaborate and to advocate and facilitate access to affordable spaces for making, exhibiting and performing.

ArtsCoast: Spaces for Creatives does just that through supporting or activating a network of spaces across the region including sub tropic studio, The Old Lock Up and 2nd Space.

Independent spaces and artists are also able to list and find space through the Creative Spaces website, an initiative of Melbourne City Council and supported by Sunshine Coast Council. Find out more or find a space on the Sunshine Coast.
