Our spaces

Conveniently located in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley, approximately five minutes from the CBD, the Judith Wright Arts Centre (JWAC) lives and breathes creativity, both as a performing arts venue and a home to internationally-recognised arts organisations and creative industry tenants.

Our spaces include:

Performance Space

Judith Wright Centre Performance SpaceThe Performance Space is one of Brisbane’s most flexible theatre spaces offering three core configurations with a maximum capacity of 300. It is a popular option for events requiring raked theatre seating, cabaret style, or the flexibility of a flat floor layout.
