In 2016 the team at Tuggeranong Arts started to work thematically across all program areas.
By setting an annual theme that has relevance to the strategic goals of the organisation and encourages creative discourse, regarding relevant political and social topics, we hoped to inspire artists and audiences alike, to work with the theme.
The Tuggeranong Arts Centre will continue to work thematically and by doing so engage with interest groups and individuals, artists and performers, who wish to work with us to explore the theme through arts and cultural development.
For 2017 our theme shifts to animals
Food, friend or foe; guardian, mascot or symbol, animals appear everywhere in our society. Ever present in the human psyche, animals connect us to the wild and anchor us in the domestic.
Indulge in your pet passions, scrutinise the treatment of animals and receive some good old pet therapy as we explore the theme of animals across a program of dance, theatre, music, film and visual arts.
We also invite you to consider hiring our spaces. The Hunting Lodge is the Art Centre’s intimate lakeside space. You can also hire the 110 seat theatre/cinema, one of two beautiful dance studios, or a choice of three gallery spaces.
