The Creative Workshops

Belconnen Arts Centre is growing! Over 2018 & 2019 we will be completing the arts centre with a new performance space, exhibition galleries, dance and visual arts classrooms and more. The building project is scheduled to commence early next year. We’ll continually update our website to keep you informed over the coming months for space availability during the construction period. For all the latest information, click here.


Located beside the light filled Foyer Gallery space, Belconnen Arts Centre features two large creative workshop spaces which are suitable for large art projects and craft classes, or as a setting to get creative as a business or departmental team. The Creative Workshops accommodate both children’s and adult’s creative arts classes and are the home of our popular School Holiday Programs.

Overlooking Lake Ginninderra and with access to an enclosed courtyard, this is the perfect environment to hold a class, develop ideas or challenge your team. Utilise our network of local artists and teachers to deliver customised art classes for your team. And if you are an artist yourself, you may like to discuss using the space as a cost-effective base from which to run your own classes and workshops. Step out to take in the exhibitions in the gallery, order a coffee from the kiosk or stretch your legs at the lake. This is a flexible space which can be customised to suit a variety of needs.

Both workshops can be set up with tables and chairs or easels. Chairs and tables are also available for under 5 year olds.
WORKSHOP 1 & 2 – comfortably seated up to 12 – 20
Both workshops – 30 people seated theatre style

All basic furniture (chairs, tables, easels) are always included in our pricing. Extra chairs and table are available if required, access to kitchenette is available, paint trap in Creative Workshop 1, room dimensions 11m x 4m.
Fully accessible venue, all on one level, wheels welcome.
Belconnen Arts Centre is the 3 time winner of the ACT Chief Minister’s Inclusion Award.

We have a small kiosk in the centre offering tea, a good coffee, biscuits and snacks. Or for your daytime function we can organise tea/coffee and morning or afternoon tea in your workshop or Foyer Gallery when available. For lunches or larger meals you are invited to engage your preferred caterer, step out to a nearby cafe or provide your own catering for your meeting. We can facilitate deliveries and safe food storage for you. Please ask us about these options.

BAC Creative Workshops are light and roomy spaces where the tutors can inspire the creative potential of the participants.
