This project is related to the Society’s goal of advancing the public’s appreciation of the arts by providing a forum, including an artists-in-residence programme for qualified local artists to exhibit, present or perform their artistic works and for the local community to engage directly with the artists.
The arts community on the Sunshine Coast is sizeable and is located throughout the Coast. Within the Gibsons Public Market building the Society will provide a central space for local artists to:
- Engage with the community directly
- Share or perform their art
- Provide classes for the community
- Participate in an artists-in-residence programme.
