Fremantle Arts Centre (FAC) is a multi-arts organisation that has been going strong for over 40 years. Located on Finnerty Street, the historic site was originally the first purpose-built lunatic asylum in WA. It has since been a womens' home, a naval base during WWI and WWII and a technical college before opening as Fremantle Arts Centre in 1972.
Fremantle Arts Centre operates a number of programming streams, with over 30 staff members operating the Exhibitions, Learning, Events and Music, Communications, Finance, Reception and Grounds departments, not to mention the best little shop in town, Found.
The Exhibitions team manage a cutting-edge selection of contemporary arts from practitioners locally, nationally and internationally, with a growing Residencies program running alongside. FAC also manages the Moores Building on Henry Street in Fremantle's historic West End.
The Learning program is a cornerstone of FAC's operations, with more than 1,000 enrolments each term. Tailored to kids and adults, courses range from weekend workshops to mid-week night classes, along with a kids holiday program.
In recent years, FAC has become a premiere venue for Australian and international musicians. A diverse range of acts play year-round, from local bands at Sunday Music throughout summer, to touring acts on the South Lawn such as Paul Kelly and Elvis Costello.
