The Port Community Arts Centre was established in 1987 and is housed in the heritage Black Diamond Centre building at the corner of Commercial Road and St Vincent Streets, Port Adelaide, which is next door to the Visitor Information Centre.
In the spirit of community, it is completely managed by volunteers, including artists and people with special skills. The facilities consist of a workshop with areas for artists and art classes of various kinds such as drawing, painting and ceramics. There is an art gallery for exhibitions and supporting office space.
The Port Community Arts Centre’s role is to provide a quality community cultural development and community arts program for the local community. Enrich and celebrate the community culture of the Port Adelaide area by involving and responding to the local community in the activities and projects that the Arts Centre undertakes. Promote accessibility of these activities to all sectors of the community.
