Belconnen Arts Centre offers leadership and vision in connecting artists with audiences. With your gift, you can help to ensure a vibrant, sustainable Arts Centre is able to flourish for the Belconnen community, and for all of Canberra. Donations to Belconnen Arts Centre above $2.00 are tax deductible, and a great way to help directly support the varied events, workshops and programs of the centre. You can make a secure online gift through GiveNow, or you can send in your gift form by mail!


Belconnen Arts Centre is recruiting volunteers to help out in the Centre, on the picturesque banks of Lake Ginninderra. Volunteers have the opportunity to become a vital part of the Centre's operations by donating their time, skills and experience. Volunteers will gain access and exposure to a wide range of artistic practise, gain new skills and share company with people who are also interested in spending time in this beautiful arts environment. Particular areas where we would appreciate your assistance range from simple tasks like answering the phone, coordinating media clippings and office support, hosting the kiosk and assisting with exhibitions, events and workshops, collating information for e-news, and web and data entry for people who have good computer skills.

Volunteers will also be invited to undertake initiatives in their own right as the Arts Centre develops over time.

To discuss a potential partnership, please contact Jack Lloyd, Business & Operations Director.


Every emerging artist can benefit from a mentor and so the opportunity to provide a connection between emerging and professional artists at Belconnen Arts Centre is one that we hope to offer through a number of initiatives.
