You might have heard the news already, but the epic SWELL Sculpture Festival is going ahead this year from 10 – 19 September on Currumbin Beach.

You can look forward to seeing over 65 large-scale sculptural works by nationally and internationally renowned artists, as part of the free and all-inclusive 10-day outdoor sculpture exhibition.

From dawn until dusk and into nightfall, the sculptures will amaze and inspire as Currumbin Beach is transformed into an unmissable outdoor gallery experience as each sculpture tells its own unique story. SWELL also has a fringe events program running at Dust Temple, as well as the four points of the SWELL Compass with pop-up exhibitions at Mudgeeraba, Chevron Island and Helensvale Library.

The SWELL Smalls Gallery—which will host all the miniature sculptures—will also host an exciting program of live events, including visual arts and literacy masterclasses, live music, spoken word experiences and creative culinary adventures.

With so many events being postponed or cancelled this year, it’s really great to see SWELL Festival making a comeback, so enjoy it while it's here!
