Arts Connect Inc (ACI)

Arts Connect Logo

Arts Connect Inc. (ACI) is a not-for-profit organisation that supports and promotes the practice and enjoyment of the arts across the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, South East Queensland. Our members are drawn from many areas representing artists, art lovers and patrons.  Our visual artists have a diverse range of skills and experience across many art forms.

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 encourage excellence in arts practices through shared activities including Members’ Exhibitions and Workshops.  Members and friends of ACI also enjoy music, song, food and art at our Social Functions.

Two major activities of ACI are Sculpture on the Edge (now a national competition set in the beautiful setting of Spicers Tamarind Retreat, Maleny) and our monthly trail of diverse Open Studios across the Blackall Range (commencing August 2015). Studios are open on the last weekend of each month, please visit our website for studio details and locations.

We appreciate support from SCRCouncil, RADF, our major sponsors and many local businesses.
