Twin arts centres, Ainslie and Gorman, host the national capital’s largest collective of professional artists and arts companies a stone’s throw from the city centre.
Ainslie Arts Centre
Ainslie Arts Centre dedicates everything to music. Through education, rehearsals, and public performances, the music hub unites music-makers and music-lovers in an expansive and exciting program. Diversity and inclusiveness are key, with a strong emphasis on youth and on community music programs.
With a newly renovated interior, the Ainslie Arts Centre boasts 3 sound-insulated tuition pods, eight classrooms, broadband enabled co-working spaces and two large halls.
The Ainslie Main Hall is a fully fledged, refurbished, concert hall featuring original heritage wooden flooring, new lighting and AV equipment and a high ceiling with acoustic panelling.
Gorman Arts Centre
Gorman Arts Centre is where new ideas, new works, and new artists are made and where they rub shoulders with audiences and each other in a bustling, multi-arts environment. Gorman supports creative development and excellence across all art forms – dance, visual arts, theatre, literature and more – and they encourage critical debate about the arts and their power to change the world.
Gorman Arts Centre features a diverse range of venues, including beautifully landscaped courtyards, multi-use performance spaces, meeting spaces and a broadband enabled co-working hub.
