The Sunshine Coast Creative Alliance (SCCA) was established in 2008 as a not-for-profit, arts advocacy organisation, governed by a member-elected volunteer Board. The SCCA connects the dots between creative thinkers, businesses, places, supporters, target markets, audiences and key stakeholders through advocacy, networking and partnerships. The SCCA has grown in membership, reach and reputation since and has become proud parent of the Creative Arts Alliance Ltd (CAA).
