Blank is the Gold Coast’s independent cultural voice – a monthly street press dedicated to dishing up the best of the Gold Coast’s music, art, food, culture and more.
Driven by a genuine desire to tell the stories of the people who make the Gold Coast awesome, we try to keep things as simple as possible by affecting change as efficiently as we can.
Launched in print in December 2013, we have grown our community to include around 16,500 readers (in print) every month, with an additional 15-20,000 online. In the past 12 months we believe we have reached around 10% of the Gold Coast population on our web statistics alone. But our reach goes further than that.
With a writing team that includes novice, amateur and emerging writers as well as experienced music, culture and lifestyle journalists and a management team with a strong belief in community engagement, we are proud to be Gold Coast and we are fiercely independent.
Who we are
Blank was founded by two mothers, Samantha Morris and Chloe Popa. Sick to death of the boring stereotypes associated with the Gold Coast, we decided to take matters into our own hands – to capture the best bits of the Gold Coast to share them with people who care about community and culture.
