The new Belconnen Community Arts Centre is located on the magnificent Lake Gininderra foreshore adjacent to the Belconnen central business district and is intended to revitalise inner Belconnen. Plazas and foreshore promenades will provide high quality outdoor recreation and lakeside performance spaces.
The centre includes both visual and performing arts facilities for both “making” and “presenting” the creative arts, administration, retail and cafes. Facilities include: a flexible format theatre and associated amenities for up to 280 seats, art gallery and sculpture court and service areas, dance / rehearsal studio, four ‘artists-in-residence’ offices and workshops, eighty-seat cafe / bar, one-hundred seat restaurant plus outdoor seating, two retail outlets, arts lounge for small events, administration office, board room, meeting rooms, patrons amenities.
In addition, the project involves upgrades to the existing 180 seat Belconnen Studio Theatre.
The project is to integrate the full range of environmentally sustainable design features.
