Generate Regional Arts Program

The Generate program aimed to discover local artists who could deliver world-class performances and events that showcased our home-grown talent in the lead up to the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.

The three-year program saw selected artists generate, test and develop creative and bold ideas in the lead up to GC2018.

This exciting creative platform not only inspired a memorable arts and cultural program, but also supported local arts and culture by providing long-term benefits through professional development for a number of Gold Coast artists.

Generate was an initiative of the City of Gold Coast and supported by the Queensland Government through the Regional Arts Development Fund and the Office of the Commonwealth Games.
