Call to Create began in 2013 and over the past 3 years we have successfully supported 25 presentations and creative developments involving number of artists. Some of these projects have gone onto have extended and successful lives (WANITA (2015), The Man Who Committed Thought (2014), Encre Noir (2015), In Plan Sanskrit (2015).

Call to Create was developed in response to overwhelming demand from artists to engage with FCAC and the way we uniquely combine working in community with making art. Through Call to Create we bring together artists and audiences interested in the creative process to explore, experiment and experience new ideas.

Call to Create is a unique creative space within a fore thinking arts centre which values work that is contemporary, relevant and accessible. We welcome artists from culturally diverse backgrounds, artists who have a disability, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists, women and senior artists to apply.
