The Walls Art Space, located in Miami on Queensland’s Gold Coast is a regional Artist Run Initiative (A.R.I). The Walls was founded by artists to support artists to develop new skills, make new work and engage with new peers and audiences. The Walls’ aim is to serve as a hub of creative practice, critical dialogue and innovative thinking around contemporary art. The Walls’ mission is to connect people with current and experimental art on the Gold Coast with a vision to provide transformative art experiences and enrich the Australian cultural landscape. Since 2013 The Walls has developed a permanent exhibition space in the beach-side suburb of Miami that has become an essential destination for art and cultural experience on the Gold Coast. The Walls’ annual program focus is artist centred and is dedicated to the creation of monthly curated exhibitions, a local artist in residence studio program, an international exchange program (with the other Miami in Florida U.S.A.), event series, screenings, artist talks, publications and joint and off-site programs. The Walls is an incorporated association and runs in a not-for-profit organisation.
