Opened in February 2011, Bankstown Arts Centre is a cultural facility, where artists and community groups collaborate to explore ideas and learn, create and experience contemporary community-based arts.
Alongside presenting unique exhibitions and events to the public, the Arts Centre provides accommodation for professional and amateur arts organisations, as well as a range of flexible spaces to develop a range of arts practice.
A major focus for the Arts Centre is to provide support and reduce barriers to arts engagement for artists, communities and audiences experiencing social exclusion such as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, people with a disability, culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) and low-income communities.
Resident organisations at Bankstown Arts Centre include Urban Theatre Projects, Bankstown Youth Development Service, Bankstown Art Society, Bankstown and District Lapidary Club Inc. and Bankstown Theatrical Society.
