GC2018 arts and cultural program

The Queensland Government has developed the GC2018 Arts and Culture Concept Plan in collaboration with the City of Gold Coast and GOLDOC. The vision, objectives and principles set out in the plan will be used to:

  • design a program of cultural activities and events that engage Queenslanders in the Games
  • showcase the very best of Queensland culture and lifestyle to the anticipated global cumulative broadcast audience of 1.5 billion.

The plan seeks to capitalise on the Gold Coast and Queensland’s cultural strengths and builds on the outcomes of community consultation recently undertaken around the state.

As well as enhancing the GC2018 experience by creating a buzz and sense of excitement throughout the host city and beyond, the cultural program will result in significant legacy benefits for local communities.
