Geelong Arts Centre
Geelong Arts Centre was built on the enthusiasm and commitment of the Greater Geelong Community with a need for a high quality facility for the benefit of our artists and audiences.
Geelong Arts Centre opened in 1981 with performing arts, functions, events and customer service in mind. With over nine spaces, it boasts two theatres, four conference and event spaces, a restaurant and cafe.
Today it is a well utilised facility providing a wide range of performances and events and the opportunity for participation in the performing arts. The organisation is committed to excellence in all that it does, ensuring an exciting and bright future.
Here at Geelong Arts Centre, we believe that the arts have the power to shape people, society and the world.
We exist to foster the artists and creative communities of Geelong, and to be the window through which our city can view the world's creative talent.
