A:1 Art Gallery Rd, Campbelltown NSW 2560
Located on the edge of Sydney, Campbelltown Arts Centre (C-A-C) is in a unique position to forge collaborative exchanges between artists, disciplines and communities through the creation of new curatorial situations and challenging streams of practice.
Using the edge as a starting point, C-A-C creates a secure platform for communities and artists to take risks, challenge perceptions, confront issues and raise questions through the commissioning of new works. These new works invite collaboration, partnership, local, national and international dialogue, the juxtaposition of new and traditional techniques and cross-disciplinary approaches. Contemporary artists are at the forefront of C-A-C’s programming and through consultation with communities, it delivers a program that profiles contemporary visual arts, performance, dance, music, live art and emergent practices. Located on Dharawal land, C-A-C is proudly owned by the people of Campbelltown. C-A-C is a cultural facility of Campbelltown City Council, assisted by the NSW Government through Create NSW and by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body. C-A-C receives support from the Crown Resorts Foundation and the Packer Family Foundation and the Neilson Foundation.
The Friends of Campbelltown Arts Centre are a not-for-profit organisation that support C-A-C and offers its members personalised invitations to its artistic program and special events, great discounts to performances, events and workshops, the opportunity to exhibit works in its Friends Annual exhibition and more benefits. There is an annual membership fee associated with becoming a member and is $28 Single, $35 Household, $18 Concession/Student or $110 Corporate. Apply for membership at c-a-c.com.au.
