The Barwon Heads Arts Council Inc. (BHAC) was established in February 2013 as a not-for-pro?t incorporated organisation with the following aims to:
- develop an arts hub for artists and the community to come together
- promote the importance of creative education though workshops, events and festivals
- promote the arts throughout the Bellarine Peninsula.
Community Arts Hub
Our vision is to establish a sustainable Community Arts Hub. It is an inclusive vision that will support all local artists; the visual arts, music, drama, theatre, dance, poetry and literature. A community that values the arts enhances local identity and uniqueness. We believe art is a catalyzing symbol of the people as a community.
Barwon Heads is an arts town lacking a dedicated Community Arts Hub for its increasing population. Year round activity at the Community Arts Hub will provide significant annual economic growth for the community. This will boost local tourism and business in Barwon Heads and take advantage of the region’s natural beauty.
