supporting ARTists & CONNECTing communities
Arts Connect Inc. (ACI) supports and promotes the practice and enjoyment of the arts across the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, in Queensland’s south-east.
We coordinate a wide range of activities that provide opportunities for artists to exhibit and sell their works.
ACI is a not-for-profit organisation and membership is open to everyone – artist, art lover or patron. We continually search for opportunities to expand our members’ professional development and marketing potential.
Our goal is to establish and promote the hinterland as a unique ‘arts destination’, and to stimulate a greater understanding of the arts within local communities.
We have developed several signature events over the last few years and are always open to new ideas and opportunities.
The Sunshine Coast Hinterland Open Studios program has been a great success over several years, attracting over 2000 visits to a diverse range of studios throughout the Blackall Rangeduring the 2013 program.
Sculpture on the Edge has developed into a great opportunity for sculptors to showcase their larger works in the beautiful setting of Spicers Tamarind Retreat from September to November. Spicers have sponsored this event over several years and in 2014 we welcome artists to enter the Inaugural Spicers Sculpture Award
Members Exhibitions, as opportunites present, are held in local galleries as group exhibitions allowing members to showcase their work in a supportive environment.
