The King Island Arts and Cultural Centre was established by Council in 2006. The Artist Residency is a key part of the centre’s activities and, as well as offering visiting artists unhindered creative time and space, it plays an important role in encouraging and inspiring artists in the local community. Located in the picturesque Currie Wharf precinct, the centre includes workshop space and gallery and offers a glimpse into the uniqueness of the Island’s environment and cultural life.
