EVENTS IN COOLUM BEACH

PATTERNS IN THE LANDSCAPE TIDAL 

FIRST BAY COOLUM

A performative environmental installation on spectacular Sunshine Coast beaches.  

Patterns in the Landscape will explore our relationship with landscape through the synergy of art and movement. Fluid large-scale artworks will be inscribed on the sand by performers, revealing patterns and markings through coordinated movement and interaction. Witness a connection to the landscape – both ephemeral and memorable - a reminder of the transience of our valuable unique environment.  

Patterns in the Landscape will appear at three different coastal locations, and will be free to attend.  

Please note, times may vary depending on tides.

SUPER SOUVENIR

TICKLE PARK

Presented in a repurposed 1978 Viscount Royale caravan, Super Souvenir is a mobile-hybrid art space that explores the concept of place through the lens of a souvenir. Sunshine Coast local artists come together with Gold Coast artists to consider the similarities and differences of our respective regions and how souvenirs and artworks reflect those concepts. You're invited to come inside the van and see the work of these artists in a visual dialogue with displays of classic souvenirs.  

Bring the family and drop in for some hands-on workshops for all ages. 

This is a free event for which you do not need a ticket. You can register your interest to receive updates about the event and important information for your attendance.

OUR SUNSHINE COAST - TICKLE PARK

Our Sunshine Coast Photography Exhibition is a stunning representation of the Coast’s distinct environments through the lens of a camera. Photographs from 33 finalists of the 2018 Environment and Liveability Photography Awards will be showcased. 

This roaming outdoor exhibition, with an accompanying audio experience, has been curated by John Waldron and crafted from local reclaimed timbers. Designed to be accessible to diverse audiences, the exhibition will be hosted in multiple locations across the Sunshine Coast. It is an opportunity for individuals of all ages and interests to view the photographs and share the insights of the photographers who captured them.

Spend the day by the beach exploring Sunshine Coast's beauty through the eyes of the photographers. While you're there, explore the mobile-hybrid art space, Super Souvenir, that explores the concept of place through the lens of a souvenir.
