Sunshine Coast Arts Foundation

Sunshine Coast Arts Foundation’s Gifted program will support 11 diverse artist projects for 2024,  including film, dance, visual art, wearable art, theatre, musical theatre and multi-disciplinary art forms. 

Seven of the projects are supported by Gifted Program Patrons, who have nominated the arts  medium or practice that inspires them as an investment into the recipient’s creative journey. 

“SCAF’s Gifted campaign links local gifted artists with a gift from a donor,” said Sunshine Coast Arts Foundation Chair, Professor Jennifer Radbourne. “We use ‘gifted’ to create an image of someone who is talented and has exceptional ability.

“Then we use the word ‘gift’ to describe something we give willingly as a present to surprise  or celebrate. I am proud to say that this year we have increased the number of gifts we offer and thus more  recipient artists,” she said. 

This year’s recipients include award-winning film maker Paul Nevison, Priscila Da Cunha and Cesar Genaro of D.I.V.E. Theatre Collective, Visual artist, Karina Seljak, mural artist Jack MacRae, and Tuchekoi visual artist, Amanda Brierley, and visual multi-disciplinary artist, Denise Lamby, to name a few. 

Since its launch in November 2020 the Gifted program has supported 25 local artist projects.
