Discover something special at this year’s SWELL Sculpture Festival, which is returning to the Gold Coast for its 16th annual event on Currumbin Beach. SWELL Sculpture Festival is a big annual celebration of art on the Southern Gold Coast, which aims to inspire and engage its visitors by merging environment and art in an accessible and public place. This unique event turns Currumbin Beach into a platform for artists all over the world, in which it becomes decorated with awe-inspiring sculptures, interactive exhibits, and environmental artwork. It’s free to see and enjoy, so don’t miss it this spring.

Each year, Currumbin Beach takes on a whole new look with SWELL Sculpture Festival. Since 2002, this inspiring annual event – created by Natasha Edwards and Kylie Mitchell-Smith – attracts  over 250,000 people each year, where over 50 artworks cover and decorate the expansive Currumbin Beach. The beach’s 1,400 metres of golden sand becomes a surreal environment with SWELL Sculpture Festival, and it’s well worth seeing for all ages and interests, offering something that all can enjoy and find inspiration from.

SWELL Sculpture Festival is a must for those passionate about art and expression, and it’s free to enjoy. 2018 will welcome its 16th event this spring, and it’s not to be missed when it takes over Currumbin Beach for ten days from September 14 to September 23.
