Darwin Community Arts

Darwin Community Arts (DCA) is a non-profit, incorporated Association that focuses on community-based arts and cultural development.

DCA began as Brown’s Mart Community Arts Project (BMCA) in mid-1970s; it was incorporated in 1979. BMCA played a significant role in arts development in Darwin for over thirty years. From it arose other key arts organisations such as Tracks Dance, Corrugated Iron Youth Arts, and the Northern Territory Writers Centre.

BMCA undertook the Reinventing Brown’s Mart program in 2007 to focus on community cultural development at a grassroots level; BMCA changed its name to Darwin Community Arts in April 2008. DCA was originally based at Brown’s Mart in the City; it started piloting grassroots arts development activities in Malak in mid-2007. It ceased managing Brown’s Mart Theatre in 2008 and moved offices to Malak Shopping Centre completely by the second half of 2009.
