About ANCA: The Australian National Capital Artists Inc. (ANCA) is an independent not-for-profit artist-run initiative in Canberra, Australia. ANCA was established in July 1989 as a collaboration between the ACT Government and representatives of Canberra’s Visual Arts community. ANCA provides affordable and professional studio and exhibition space to artists. ANCA has 35 studio spaces that it leases to professional artists across two campuses (Dickson and Mitchell). With support from artsACT, ANCA Gallery opened in 1992. The Gallery presents a professional program of art exhibitions and events, supporting critical approaches to contemporary arts practice.
ANCA is managed by a volunteer board and supported by staff.
