Welcome to Friends of The Arts Foundation Gold Coast.

Formed in 1968, The Friends are a not-for-profit organisation providing grants and youth programs to promote and encourage visual and performing arts.

Young artists are the life-blood and creative force of our arts community. As a member of The Friends you support our mission of nurturing emerging artists at critical junctures in their artistic development.

Our foundation provides continuous support to individual artists by making donations from funds raised through membership fees and social events.

This unwavering support enables residencies, workshops and masterclasses for young artists that span the visual and performing arts.
By becoming a member, you become a driving force behind the success of these young artists.
