run by artists for artists.
The NewARC was opened by the non-profit visual arts organisation Assemblage on 1 April 2012 and is the latest addition to the ‘cultural arc’ which stretches from Constitution Hill in Braamfontein, over Nelson Mandela Bridge, and into Newtown’s cultural precinct.
The space is a central hub for visual artists working in a variety of media (including painting, sculpture, photography, curating, writing, video and printmaking) and emphasises community, collaboration, sustainability and the sharing of resources, knowledge and skills. Assemblage will continue to run its current activities in the NewARC and resident artists can benefit from peer mentoring group sessions, workshops and talks, professional practice training, exhibition opportunities and international residency exchange.
