Surfers Paradise Sand Safari
Surfers Paradise Sand Safari Arts Festivals take centre stage on the sands and streets of Surfers Paradise. It is Asia-Pacific’s leading sand-and-sea-inspired arts event, with an exciting program featuring free sand sculpting workshops, Australian Sand Sculpting Championships, and much more.
We met Internationally renowned UK artist Luke Egan (aka Filthy Luker) and viewed his vibrant collection of inflatable creatures, stretching from Surfers Paradise Beach, along Cavill Avenue and into the Nerang River.
The Evandale Parklands was thrown into spectrums of lights, colours, music and action as some of the Gold Coast’s creatives launched into Glow 2015. Portia Large was there to cover the spectacle and talk to people as they enjoyed the illuminated night of entertainment, activities, artworks, and displays. Lanterns were launched across the lake in a landmark creative community project called watershed.

The Miami Marketta hosted one of its Wednesday evening art exhibitions featuring artists Tamara Armstrong, Sabine Bannard, and Sam Randall in conjunction with their regular midweek Tapas Club. There were plenty of people enjoying the great art, atmosphere, food, and music which Heidi Pozzan went to experience first hand and talk to the artists. Here are some of the highlights.
