Arts Centre Gold Coast marks 30 years

Arts Centre Gold Coast marks 30 years
December 6, 2016

30 years ago today, The Arts Centre Gold Coast opened its doors for the first time.

Opened on 6th December 1986 to a considerable fanfare, the day featured a soft opening in the afternoon with local politicians and media in attendance, followed by a huge celebration that night with Pop Goes The Centre – A performance by The Queensland Pops Orchestra and The Queensland State and Municipal Choir.

Since then the Arts Centre has grown to become the Gold Coast’s premier cultural facility, bringing visual and performing arts to residents of South East Queensland.

With stage 1 of the Cultural Precinct underway, The Arts Centre Gold Coast and The Gold Coast Cultural Precinct will soon become the place where people come together to engage with arts, culture and each other, with an Arts Centre Gold Coast statement suggesting it will be "like Melbourne’s Federation Square or New York City’s Times Square."

Arts Centre Gold Coast has released a short film celebrating its 30 year heritage.
