Bleached Arts Ltd is a cutting-edge arts organisation at the forefront of the Gold Coast’s arts and culture scene. With the City of the Gold Coast as its Founding Member, Bleached Arts Ltd is a not for profit company, recognised as a Charity by the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commissions and has received Deductible Gift Recipient Status through the Register of Cultural Organisations.

Bleached Arts has a broad charter to advance arts and culture in the community, which it does principally through the delivery of its signature event, Bleach* Festival, and associated arts events. Bleach* is the Gold Coast Festival, taking place annually across the City in April. The program is one of Australia’s leading and most exciting site-specific, contemporary arts programs.


Bleached Arts acknowledges the country on which we work and present the Bleach* The Gold Coast Festival. We acknowledge the traditional custodians of this land – the Yugambeh and the Bundjalung people.  We give our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.
