Flourish brings community and families together by celebrating all that the arts have to offer. If you enjoy the arts, or if you have a creative gift you would like to share, or would like to simply celebrate life in a community atmosphere then be involved in any one of the activities on offer for Flourish 2017.      

The 2017 Festival is calling for all people in any of the following categories:

Arts and Crafts Stalls

If you are a local artist who is willing to demonstrate, exhibit and sell your work then Flourish is the perfect place for you. You can participate by having your own stalls in painting, bead work, local crafts, pottery etc, your imagination is the limit -  so why not get involved? 


We are looking for expressions of interest from people who are willing to roam around the crowd performing e.g. puppets, mime, balloon art, stilt walking etc. then we would love to hear from you.


Visual Artists

Would you like to share and sell what you create, paint, sculpt or even doodle?  Artists are invited to display, demonstrate and sell their work at either of our festivals. 



If you have skills in providing Workshops for children in a market atmosphere, then we will have a crowd of families looking to try new things and happy to get involved. We are providing spaces for workshops to give the families of the Gold Coast the opportunity to try new things and learn new skills.


Do you believe in community and want to help out families on the Gold Coast, then we need your help. We are looking for Volunteers to help out at this year’s festivals. If you have a free day or even a free hour we could use your help! Please fill in the form below to register your interest.


If you have a good idea for being involved that we have not listed above please fill in the form and let us know how you would like to work with Flourish and we will see if it is possible to accommodate your idea.
