The team from Placemakers* Gold Coast officially opened this year’s BLEACH* Festival on Thursday 12 November. Bleach* 2020 invites audiences to experience the coast through great storytelling, contemporary art, music, cabaret and dance. In 2020, Bleach* is unashamedly local, celebrating the city’s best artists, showcasing renowned Queensland musicians and one-of-a-kind contemporary arts experiences. Locals and visitors are invited to meet on the Burleigh shore for live performances, music, installation and events with a dedicated First Nations focus and some of South East QLD’s most celebrated artists and cultural leaders. The event kicks of at 5am with a ‘first light’ ceremony by Luther Cora & Yugambeh Dancers on Burleigh Beach.
