Placemakers* Gold Coast partners with organisations and individuals who share our values of nurturing community through culture-led, place-based experiences. 

We work with a range of organisations from the arts, corporate and not for profit sector to co-create outcomes that benefit all parties, especially the communities we work in.

Those benefits extend far beyond financial or promotional value, to enrich the social, cultural and environmental fabric of our lives and communities.

We seek mutually fulfilling partnerships that cater to organisational and individual needs and aspirations. The process of placemaking is a journey we undertake together; one that uplifts the cultural capacities and life experiences of all.

tourism and events queensland (teq)

Events play a key role in fostering regional tourism and economic development. Tourism is an essential industry to many rural and regional centres, ensuring economic stability, and events can be a cost-effective way of promoting a region and its attractions – as an event grows, it attracts tourists in its own right.

The positive economic impact and interest in a community that a successful regional event can provide not only helps to build a sense of local pride but can also foster confidence and strengthen the community as a whole.


We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the Yugambeh Language Region and all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People of the Gold Coast. We recognise their continuing connection and contributions to country and culture. We pay respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.
