Gold Coast City Council has endorsed a vision and competitive design process to progress the Gold Coast Cultural Precinct.
The decision reaffirms Council's commitment to arts and culture in our modern, global city to enhance our cultural life, economy and cultural identity.
The precinct will include significant civic space and a green bridge linking Chevron Island, a new arts museum, a living arts centre and stunning outdoor gardens for arts and cultural events, performances and community activities.
Evandale has been identified as the preferred location due to its attractive waterfront and green areas. It is also near to public transport and other city connections.
In March 2013, a global competition will seek to attract leading local, national and international designers to form multi-disciplinary teams to participate.
Clear parameters around the design outcome and its attributes will be communicated as part of the process to ensure delivery of the precinct within an agreed budget and timeline.
A new website is now available, providing project background, plans, reports, ideas and news to keep you informed about the Gold Coast Cultural Precinct's progress.
Our city needs a permanent focal point for arts and culture.
Gold Coast City Council will deliver a dynamic, multi-use precinct that will attract tourists and provide a space for locals to build our sense of community.
