Gungahlin Arts is delivered by Belco Arts and is part of the Woden and Gungahlin Pop Ups Initiative from the ACT Government. This program supports creativity in suburban areas of Canberra and creates opportunities for community connection and storytelling through the arts in Canberra’s regions. The pop-ups program was established in 2019, and is co-delivered by Belco Arts (Gungahlin Arts) and Tuggeranong Arts Centre (Woden Arts).
Since 2019, both Woden Arts and Gungahlin Arts have been delivering arts experiences in their respective regions, which are built in collaboration with local artists, and support their creative development. We draw inspiration from our local regions as we weave ourselves into our communities and create programs which connect with residents and offer opportunities for local people to create and share the story of the place that they live.
Over this time, Gungahlin Arts has delivered 58 projects across the visual and performing arts, engaged 189 artists and connected with over 40,000 community members. From dance to poetry, visual arts to song and everything in between, we are enlivening the region through the arts – and we can’t wait to see what the future brings for the program and the community of Gungahlin.
Gungahlin Arts is also the producer for Celebrate Gungahlin Festival – working alongside project partners Gungahlin Community Council, Communities@work, Northside Community Service, Crace Community Association and Barnardos to deliver this community-wide celebration of the very best that Gungahlin has to offer.
Local artists of all disciplines who are interested in being part of the program can contact Gungahlin Programs Officer Michele Grimston on 0403 929 739 or firstname.lastname@example.org
