Art and community, growth in activity, innovation, outstanding spaces and people - a region renowned for its artistic energy and engagement.
Geelong Performing Arts Centre (GPAC) was built on the enthusiasm and commitment of the Greater Geelong Community with a need for a high quality facility for the benefit of our artists and audiences.
GPAC opened in 1981 with performing arts, functions, events and customer service in mind. With over nine spaces, it boasts two theatres, conference and event spaces, a bar and cafe.
Today it is a well utilised facility providing a wide range of performances and events and the opportunity for participation in the performing arts. The organisation is committed to excellence in all that it does, ensuring an exciting and bright future.
GPAC is one of a group of state owned cultural agencies including Victorian Arts Centre, Museum Victoria, National Gallery of Victoria, State Library of Victoria, Australian Centre for Moving Image and Film Victoria.
GPAC is a Statutory Authority and was established by the Geelong Performing Arts Centre Trust Act 1980 No 9406. The Minister responsible is Martin Foley, Minister for Creative Industries.
GPAC gratefully acknowledges financial assistance from the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria, Department Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources.
