Canberra Contemporary Arts Space (CCAS) is one of a national network of contemporary arts organisations (CAOs) that provides a supportive environment in which contemporary artists can develop innovative multi media practices and careers in the visual arts. The CCAS program of exhibitions, performances, artists’ talks, public programs and publications aims to provide opportunities for artists in the ACT to exhibit their work within a competitive context of current national and international practice. CCAS has a large gallery space at Gorman Arts Centre, a space at Manuka, and a newer space in the City. CCAS also runs a Studio Residency Program for six emerging artists each year.
CCAS receives funding from ACT Government through artsACT and the Federal Government through Australia Council. Established in 1987 CCAS is a non-profit organisation with an elected board of management. It presents over 40 contemporary art projects annually in the ACT, operating venues at Gorman Arts Centre and a smaller gallery in Manuka.
