About the Gallery
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, Campbelltown Arts Centre 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 Campbelltown Arts Centre’s programming and through consultation with communities, we deliver a program that profiles contemporary visual arts, performance, dance, music, live art and emergent practices.
Located on Dharawal land, Campbelltown Arts Centre is proudly owned by the people of Campbelltown. 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. Campbelltown Arts Centre receives support from the Crown Resorts Foundation and the Packer Family Foundation and the Neilson Foundation.
Held on site at Campbelltown Arts Centre, Campbelltown City Council collection comprises of over 1,400 artworks by significant Australian and International artists. Valued at over $7 million, the collection grows each year through acquisition, generous donations, bequests, the acquisitive Fisher’s Ghost Art Award, new commissioned works and through the Australian Government’s Cultural Gifts Program.
Since 1988, the collection has developed into a diverse array of artworks which reflect contemporary arts practices and artworks relevant to the Macarthur region. Throughout the year you can view a display of artworks from the collection at C-A-C Collections Gallery.
C-A-C presents an innovative artistic and cultural program that is multidisciplinary and community engaged in nature. C-A-C is recognised as an innovator in engaging diverse communities in contemporary practice and is highly respected by artists and the industry, both locally and internationally. C-A-C supports established and emerging artists to create new work that explores significant social and political themes, and pushes the boundaries of contemporary practice and traditional spaces. Located between an urban and regional environment on the edge of Greater Sydney, we use the space in between to create a platform for artists, communities and cultural practitioners to take risks, challenge perceptions, confront issues, ask questions and create experiences that resonate with local, national and international audiences.
