Attractions

Due to open in 2024, the National Centre for Photography will proudly sit on Lydiard Street, between Craigs Hotel, the Art Gallery of Ballarat and the Post Office Gallery, and will add to the public gallery programming of Ballarat. It is aligned with the vision of Ballarat City Councils Arts Precinct.

A classic architectural site of Ballarat, the former Union Bank building will house two dedicated gallery spaces downstairs; a contemporary gallery for temporary exhibitions and a community gallery. Upstairs there will be a professional dark room, a dedicated photobook library as well as a stockroom housing the BIFB’s permanent collection of images. The building will be multi-functional allowing for educational workshop spaces and an artist in residence program with a professional studio and accommodation facilities.

The National Centre for Photography will accommodate the offices of the BIFB in-turn ensuring the community can participate in positive arts experiences in Ballarat all year round. A curated Public and Education Program within the centre will have the potential for thousands of creative outcomes as well as adding to the tourism dollar by attracting national and international audiences and participants.
