The Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA) is a not-for-profit, charitable organisation, and Australia’s leading museum dedicated to exhibiting, collecting and interpreting the work of today’s artists. The MCA celebrates the work of living artists, and brings exceptional exhibitions of international and Australian art to over a million visitors each year – in the belief that art is for everyone.
The MCA aims to make contemporary art and ideas widely accessible to a range of audiences through the presentation of a diverse program of exhibitions and special events, both onsite and offsite. From major thematic exhibitions and solo surveys of established artists, to new work by emerging artists, touring exhibitions and community-led projects through C3West, the MCA strives to cover the range and diversity of contemporary art.
ANDYINC FOUNDATION'S INVOLVEMENT
MCA BELLA PROGRAM
The Bella Program was established in 1993 through the generosity of MCA patrons, Dr Edward Jackson AM and Mrs Cynthia Jackson AM, and the Jackson family, in memory of their late daughter and sister Belinda.
The MCA’s ethos is that art is for everyone, and Bella is central to our commitment to access. Since beginning in 1993, Bella has developed to include an annually commissioned artwork in the Jackson Bella Room, and a suite of programs and events that respond to the diversity of people accessing our creative learning programs.
Bella welcomes all people with disability or access requirements. All Bella programs are tailored by MCA artist educators, so that every program delivered is responsive to the access needs of the people participating.
Andyinc Foundation supported the production of a Bella video, which shows what it’s like to visit the MCA as part of the Bella Program. To see Bella program videos, click here.
