Presented in a repurposed 1978 Viscount Royale caravan, Super Souvenir is a mobile-hybrid art space that explores the concept of place through the lens of a souvenir. Sunshine Coast local artists come together with Gold Coast artists to consider the similarities and differences of our respective regions and how souvenirs and artworks reflect those concepts. You're invited to come inside the van and see the work of these artists in a visual dialogue with displays of classic souvenirs.
Bring the family and drop in for some hands-on workshops for all ages.
This is a free event for which you do not need a ticket. You can register your interest to receive updates about the event and important information for your attendance.
