The 2024 Members' Exhibition has been postponed

To be held once the building improvements are complete

With building improvements currently underway and a new lighting system in the works, we are sad to say this year's Members expo can't go ahead at Easter. 

All usual activities and events are proceeding as planned, and the building improvements will set us up into the future. 

We apologise for short notice of this postponement, and look forward to seeing you soon!

About Us

BRAG is a community organisation for artists, craftspeople, writers, performers, teachers, art enthusiasts and supporters within Braidwood and the area. BRAG was established in 2002. The Arts Centre at 45 Wallace Street was purchased with the help of the broader community and the Federal Government. It was officially opened in 2012.

The BRAG Arts Centre provides a space to gather, learn, exhibit and enjoy.

The Centre is used by the members for BRAG exhibitions and events, and is also available to hire for any purpose -

a pop-up expo, a party,

a one-off performance or a weekly class.

BRAG is a not-for-profit community organisation. All donations go towards improving our facilities and services.

Your donations to our Public Fund are tax-deductible.​

The 2023-4 Committee: 

K. Dominick (President), Laura Moriarty (Vice President), M. Glover (Treasurer), R. McCann (Secretary), Rebekah Hamilton, Lea Durie, Sheelagh Noonan, Nadia McLeish, Alison Ford, Mary-Lou Nugent
