HOTA, Home of the Arts

Home is where the art is

A dedicated cultural precinct is the sign of a city that values it art and cherishes its artists. The Gold Coast’s HOTA, Home Of The Arts combines high culture with a quintessentially Gold Coast appeal, creating a vibrant cultural hub where art is for everyone and the unexpected dwells around every corner. Set amid tropical, lakeside parklands, against the backdrop of the spectacular Surfers Paradise skyline, HOTA offers indie arthouse cinema alongside international blockbusters, large-scale outdoor concerts at the amphitheatre and intimate theatre, dance and stand-up comedy. Stroll around the lake or take a dip, visit the café for a pre-or-post-show snack, spread out a picnic rug on the green for the latest show at the amphitheatre, or wander the art gallery for its collection of local and international art and topical and innovative exhibitions.

With the spectacular, $60.5 million new art gallery set to open in 2021, HOTA is fast evolving into Australia’s best contemporary cultural playground, be-fitting our fast-growing city. The recently opened, $19.5 million Green Bridge spans the Nerang River, linking the cultural precinct to Chevron Island, with its popular shops, cafes, bars and restaurants and the bright lights of Surfers Paradise. This carefully planned connectivity makes HOTA easily accessible for pedestrians and cyclists creating a true community hub. The HOTA precinct will continue to evolve over the next 10 to 15 years based on the HOTA masterplan, as funding is identified and as the city’s artistic and cultural needs grow, ensuring the arts continue to thrive on the Gold Coast.

For a new generation of aspiring creative professionals, long-time local artists, those who’ve honed their craft elsewhere and returned to the city they love and those drawn from afar by our city’s enviable lifestyle, HOTA will continue to provide a career springboard and supportive, hot-house environment. For audiences, HOTA represents a dazzling offering of innovative programming year-round for all tastes.
