The Sunshine Coast Arts Council is a volunteer-based society founded February 22, 1966 to raise the profile of local artists and artisans. Our mandate is to broaden the opportunities for the citizens, artists and artisans of the Sunshine Coast to enjoy and participate in local cultural activities.
Over the years the Sunshine Coast Arts Council has been a vital resource for the artistic and cultural life of the Sunshine Coast community. The Arts Centre building includes the ‘Doris Crowston’ public gallery, music studio and art studio. The Arts Centre was build by the community for the community and we proudly share this beautiful building with artists, artisans, community groups, and the general public. The Sunshine Coast Arts Council hosts a variety of cultural events at the Arts Centre and in the community throughout the year including: workshops, concerts, readings, film showings, lectures, public events, and children’s activities.
