Community Groups

The MCA is committed to making contemporary art accessible for a wide range of audience, both within the gallery spaces and beyond, through a broad range of free community programs. Socially-engaging learning experiences offer an entree into thinking about and responding to contemporary art for those with little or no experience of gallery-going.

Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Programs

The MCA develops a number of important community partnerships that focus on enhancing the experience of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander audiences with contemporary art and ideas. Working closely with targeted community groups, this is developed and presented either as offsite and or onsite programs. See previous and upcoming projects taking place here or email to see how you could become involvedXXX
