HOTA and Southern Cross University announce new partnership

HOTA, Home of the Arts has today announced a new partnership with Southern Cross University

For almost 30 years, Southern Cross University has been a hub of creative development, where graduates perform on stages and exhibit in venues across the world.

“Creativity and creative thinking runs deep at Southern Cross,” said Ben Roche, Southern Cross University’s Vice President (Engagement).

“As a young and dynamic university, we strive to provide opportunities for students to broaden their minds with challenging ideas.”

HOTA CEO, Criena Gehrke shares in the commitment between education and art.

“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 those partnership alignments announced today is Southern Cross University’s support as the Corporate Partner of HOTA Gallery’s exhibition Australia’s Playground: Art on 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 6 November, 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.”
