We believe communities in Hobsons Bay will be interconnected, vibrant, resilient and will express their creativity and culture through the arts.
Through partnerships with Council, artists and the community, we deliver a vibrant arts and cultural program that supports community wellbeing. We are committed to providing an accessible and inclusive space –including a public gallery – with an environment for connection, creative exploration, experimentation, presentation and opportunities for social enterprise.
We operate in accordance with four key values that define all aspects of our work and our approach (RECS). We demonstrate these values in our work with each other, the way in which we work with the community, and the way in which we govern our organisation.
Our operations encompass all aspects of environmental and business sustainability to ensure long-term viability as a community asset and the preservation of the natural environment.
We connect our community and through those connections, create a sense of belonging and increased wellbeing.
We seek to enhance the social and economic wellbeing of communities through embracing opportunities to collaborate and grow.
We honour the rights, privacy, dignity and diversity of our community and recognise the intrinsic value of every person.
