Footscray Community Arts Centre
A community-based arts, culture and events space in Footscray.
Built in 1974 by a group of likeminded artists, the Footscray Community Arts Centre has long provided a safe and encouraging space for progressive works that balance social justice issues with creativity.
The Centre has a collection of spaces that host various artistic programs, offering a platform for the Indigenous, LGBTQIA+, migrant, refugee and disabled communities that make their home in the west. The art ranges in style and medium but you can expect to see anything from sculpture to performance, plus collaborative projects and events, all aimed at stirring community involvement.
The space itself encompasses a series of different heritage-listed buildings and open-air sites spread along the Maribyrnong River, and plays host to a diverse array of classes, workshops and exhibitions all year round.
