National Centre for Creative Learning

The Museum of Contemporary Art Australia’s new National Centre for Creative Learning (NCCL) represents a dynamic and innovative space for learning in the Museum. The Centre is situated at the very heart of the MCA’s new $53 million redevelopment, occupying 40% of the new wing. It features state-of-the art education facilities including digital and multimedia studios, two practical creative studios, a dedicated sensory room for the MCA’s Bella program for students with specific needs, a lecture theatre, seminar room and library.

Throughout the National Centre for Creative Learning, networked video-conferencing facilities, a robust wi-fi service and a unique digital infrastructure utilising latest technologies, enable the MCA to seamlessly engage with schools across Australia, bringing international and Australian artists and MCA artist educators into classrooms across the country. The NCCL will also provide innovative online digital content and rich, creative learning resources to support teachers in delivering the new national curriculum in experimental ways.

The MCA aims to be a national model of best practice in visual arts education underpinned by the most recent advances in educational and digital research. Through the National Centre for Creative Learning, the MCA will offer an exciting range of programs which will enable visitors of all ages to engage directly with contemporary art and participate in a variety of creative experiences which stretch the mind and inspire new ways of looking at and thinking about contemporary art.
