Gorman Arts Centre


22 + 23 September

Friday 5 pm - 8pm
Saturday 10 am - 3 pm

In a secret garden in the heart of the city, Gorman House opens up its artist studios to reveal some of the everyday magic that happens behind its heritage walls


Home to Canberra’s largest collective of multi-disciplinary artists, makers and arts organisations, Gorman House is a hub of creative excellence and discovery. Across two days discover the wealth of talent and creativity of our resident arts community, take part in theatre, dance and maker workshops, unwind with wine-tastings and live music.

Join us Friday 22 September for House Party, a curated evening of spoken word, live music, art installation, contemporary jewellery and select market stalls, plus food + wine for the ultimate afterwork kick back.

On Saturday 23 September we invite you to Makers Residence. Discover what’s inside the Gorman buildings with a family friendly day full of workshops for kids and adults alike, open studios, market stalls, art and crafts and picnic hangs in our magical courtyards.
