Burnie Arts Council

Burnie Arts Council Logo

Burnie Arts Council Inc (BAC) is the original branch of Tasmanian Regional Arts.

The BAC seek to raise and consolidate the profile of Burnie as the arts hub for the region. In their 70 years of continuous operation, they have worked to link local arts organisations, advocate for arts development and driven significant community projects.

Their biennial competition, Design Eye Creative paper on skin, has become a premier event on the Tasmanian arts calendar. In 2020 a filmed version of the event was released. It can be viewed here.

Several of their community programs are ongoing, and involve a diverse range of ages, interests and areas of artistic focus.
