Creative Development Program

In 2018, a fresh rebrand of The Arts Centre Gold Coast has taken place to HOTA – Home of the Arts – to step into a more contemporary space with the expansion of the precinct and a focus on further embracing the local community with an artistic home.

HOTA wants to support art-making and provide platforms for creative development, presentation and collaboration. They want to help local artists take risks, experiment and create great art.

With a little help from the City of Gold Coast, the Creative Development opportunity, in year one, will be split into two streams, Little Bites and Big Bites. There will be a combined total funding pool of over $200,000 in cash and in-kind resources.

Stream 1 – Little Bites

For projects that need a little help to get the ball rolling. This is generally for projects that are in initial stages of development, or for projects with a clear ambition for use of space and resources at HOTA. This may look like any of the following:

o Up to $5000 in cash support; and/or
o Up to $5000 value in in-kind support, for example:
▪ Use of HOTA spaces for development of work for up to two weeks
▪ Use of HOTA spaces for presentation for up to seven days
▪ Use of HOTA technicians to assist with technical show development
▪ Use of outdoor spaces
▪ Tapping into HOTA ticketing and marketing resources for a showing
