WELCOME to the Bellingen Community Arts Council (BCAC)

The BCAC is a not-for-profit community organisation which is entirely volunteer run. It was incorporated in 1996.

The BCAC supports and enhances cultural and artistic activities in the Bellingen Shire. Activities engage audiences and artists, encourage and promote cultural development in many forms and contribute to a dynamic and vital community.  

New members are always welcome to join the BCAC. Membership provides benefits for those who enjoy making art; attending openings, talks and performances; as well as further opportunities to learn more about art.

The BCAC is managed by a committee that meets the first Tuesday of alternate months. Members and guests are invited to attend.
