Call Out for 2018 Exhibition Program Now Open







2018 Exhibition Program – Applications Now Open

We invite artists to join us in fuelling a love of the arts and creative experience to present in a vibrant exhibition program in 2018.

Belconnen Arts Centre presents a dynamic exhibition program supporting emerging and established artists to exhibit for four weeks in the Main, Foyer, Arts Lounge and Outdoor Galleries.

Featured artists are given the opportunity to connect with a vivacious and diverse audience in an established hub located in Belconnen’s town centre for the arts in the north and west of Canberra.

Proposals are welcomed from Canberra and further nationally from individuals and collectives. 

The 2018 program aims to showcase the wealth and diversity of creative practice.  We aim to present socially engaged, experimental, interactive projects, new media and digital arts, complimented by the more traditionally founded practices.  Applications are encouraged from Indigenous artists, artists with disability, artists from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, emerging and established artists.

Please note that the July – December exhibition period is highly sort after and competitive.

If you intend to seek funding to assist in preparing or presenting your exhibition please speak to us about potential Project Grant applications and Letters of Support. Our team are here to guide and provide expert curatorial and marketing support.



Gallery Costs for Exhibiting Artists 

Belconnen Arts Centre is proud to offer a fully inclusive package which supports our exhibiting artists in achieving a professional and successful show. These prices are inclusive of all gallery space hire, installation, marketing, promotion, invitations, vinyl signage, room brochures, opening night event and other associated opening costs. In line with other professional galleries, a commission of 30% is taken on sales.

We encourage our artists to spend time in the gallery, and to participate in our “Exhibition Live” Program which might involve artists talks, workshops or forums which both help in the promotion of your show but more importantly boosts community participation in our dynamic and energetic exhibition program.

All shows are open for 3 full weeks with one week in between for de-installation and install of new shows. Opening nights are held on a Friday evening.
