Ainslie + Gorman Arts Centres

Please note, while restrictions put in place to respond to COVID-19 are easing, there may be some changes to business-as-usual to keep workers and visitors safe. Please contact the business for the most up to date information, including opening times and social distancing measures.

Twin arts centres, Ainslie and Gorman, host the national capital's largest collective of professional artists and arts companies a stone's throw from the city centre. If it takes a village to raise an artist, this is the village.

Gorman Arts Centre is where new ideas, new works, and new artists are made and where they rub shoulders with audiences and each other in a bustling, multi-arts environment.

Ainslie Arts Centre dedicates everything to music. Through education, rehearsals, and public performances, this music hub unites music-makers and music-lovers in an exciting program.

Ainslie and Gorman Arts Centres are located just 400 metres apart from one another, in Braddon.

“Great Place to Visit in the Nations Capital”

I had a fun day out. It is fun watching the kids play in the supervised play area. The stalls are full of interesting and affordable products from books, hand made hats, jewellery, gorgeous vintage...

Really enjoyed this visit. Lovely sunny day, sitting in the courtyard, drinking coffee and listening to great music. Quiet a few people doing the same thing, even a children’s birthday party...

Finally got round to visiting these markets and the poor reviews were right. Don't bother- they are terrible. Go to Bus Depot on Sunday instead as they are great.
