Belconnen Arts Centre – the centre of arts and cultural activity in the Belconnen Region

Belconnen Arts Centre is a place to celebrate and share stories, make memories and undertake creative journeys. We present a dynamic program throughout the centre across a range of arts practice where the work of emerging and established artists are applauded. Opportunities and experiences are gently threaded together through the artists’ exploration of space, sense of place, belonging and their relationship to the world around them.

Belconnen Arts Centre is located at 118 Emu Bank, Belconnen and is open between 10:00am-4:00pm Tuesday-Sunday. See more on accessibility.
