About Us

Belco Arts is one of the ACT’s leading arts centres.

We were established in 2009 and then fully realised with the addition of new galleries, a rehearsal room and prestigious black box theatre opening in August 2020.

Belco Arts is an inclusive and welcoming destination. We take pride in purposefullly devising our artistic program to provide opportunities to reflect our community’s rich diversity back to itself in celebration.

We support artists across the breadth of the arts to be courageous in their ambitions, and challenge them to elevate their practice to the next level.

We have commissioned new First Nations theatre work and exhibitions, worked in partnership with the LGBTIQ+ community to present exhibitions and drag pageants, and delivered over a decade of arts programs and opportunities specifically devised with and for disabled artists to grow their practice.

Belco Arts is a place to conceive ideas, undertake creative journeys, share stories, experiment, be bold and make memories. We achieve outstanding outcomes through our dynamic expert staff team with reliable governance by a board of highly skilled professionals in business, HR, the arts, academia, and law. We are a Deductible Gift Recipient, and our operations are secured through multi-year Arts Centre Investment funding from the ACT Government.

We are agile, efficient, imaginative, and resilient in how we operate and navigate the ever-changing environment.

We invite you to join us in our ambitious endeavours.
