FCAC Temporarily Closed

We’re temporarily closed and will reopen on Tuesday 14 April.

In light of the Australian Government’s recent advice on COVID-19, Footscray Community Arts Centre (FCAC) is responding to the rapidly unfolding pandemic, by prioritising the safety of artists, community and staff by announcing an initial closure until 14 April 2020.

Please click here to read our full media release outlining the impact on upcoming events.

The economic impact of COVID-19 will be drastically felt by artists, arts workers as well as independent and small to medium organisations including FCAC. As a venue, our sustainability is largely tied to the delivery of our programs and hiring of our facilities, which has been adversely impacted by COVID-19.
