Welcome to the Glenelg Shire Council

Arts Glenelg

The Arts Program annually features a diverse variety of touring performances, which are selected to cater for a range of interests in the community. Most performances are presented in the Portland Arts Centre, but some are also presented in both the Casterton Town Hall and the Heywood Community Hall.

The program presents around 14 exhibitions per year in the Woolcock Gallery at the Portland Arts Centre. The majority of these exhibitions feature some of the many talented visual artists living in the region, with the exhibition program also including artists from outside the region, and sometimes touring exhibitions of visual arts and/or social history. The Glenelg Shire Council Arts Program also provides advice and support for arts and cultural activities and projects initiated by local artists and various community arts organisations in the Shire, and where appropriate, works in collaboration with other units within Council, and with other local organisations to implement a variety of arts-related activities.
