Southern Cross University has played a key part in the creative development of our city for many years and had graduates perform on stages and exhibit in venues across the globe.
The university has joined forces with HOTA Home of the Arts in a partnership that is expected to last the next three years, with both organisations setting out to promote the importance of the arts and support the next generation of “makers creators and audiences.”
“This new partnership between Southern Cross University and HOTA is a celebration of shared values and beliefs,” she said.
“As we embark on this chapter over the next three years, we will collaborate to promote the importance of the arts for our communities and support the next generation of makers, creators and audiences.”
One of the first activations of the partnership is Southern Cross University’s support as the Corporate Partner of HOTA Galler’s exhibition Australia’s Playground: Art of the Gold Coast.
The exhibition is one of two permanent exhibition spaces at HOTA that showcases works from the City Collection.
The University is also a supporter of HOTA’s upcoming event Neon Remix on November 6, a pop-fuelled 80s-flavoured outdoor party presented as part of HOTA’s annual WONDER program on now.
Neon Remix will be opened by special guest ‘Mattymadeit’, a current Southern Cross student.
“HOTA plays a pivotal role in realising the City of Gold Coast’s vision for the Gold Coast as a global city with a world-class cultural precinct. As the fastest growing university on the Gold Coast, we’re proud to be a partner in bringing that vision to life,” said Mr Roche.
“We welcome the connectivity and engagement this will provide for our students, staff and alumni and through this partnership, we look forward to helping build and support the further development of this great City.”
