Founded in 1983, the Newcastle Community Arts Centre is a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee and has charity status. We build partnerships with other community organisations to create a range of arts projects promoting cultural development throughout Newcastle and the Hunter.
Newcastle Community Arts Centre (NCAC) is dedicated to supporting the development of community-focused arts activities by individuals, groups and organisations. NCAC supports the arts and artists in Newcastle by providing a physical space that houses 30 artist studios and teaching rooms, an artist-run gallery (Newcastle Art Space – NAS) and a theatre (The Black Box Theatre).
- Each year the centre holds an OPEN STUDIOS DAY which is the perfect opportunity to step inside all the studios and meet the artists.
- NAS hosts the annual Newcastle Emerging Artist Prize (NEAP) now in its 13th year (2013).
- Each year all the studio artists exhibit their work in a group exhibition in the NAS gallery.
We promote and support our studio artists via this website and social media and aim to provide safe and affordable artist studios and exhibition/performance spaces to the Newcastle and Hunter community.
