Ballina Arts and Crafts Incorporated (BACCI) was formed in 1998, primarily to provide and promote a friendly meeting place for artists and craftpersons from Ballina and surrounding districts.
Artistic expression of all kinds is welcomed and members are encouraged to discuss their work, and exchange ideas in a friendly stimulating atmosphere.
BACCI has at least two major exhibitions each year where members have the opportunity to display and sell their work. We are a charitable organization and these exhibitions give us the opportunity to raise funds for needy community groups. We are proud to say, we were instrumental in establishing the Northern Rivers Community Gallery which opened in 2007. This was with assistance from the local community, the Northern Rivers Arts Council and the Ballina Shire Council.
A monthly newsletter provides members with information about upcoming exhibitions, special events and social activities.
Our annual membership fee is $40.00 for exhibiting members with social membership only $20.00 per year and new members are very welcome. Memberships forms can be downloaded here or by sending a letter to The Secretary, P.O. Box 111, Ballina NSW 2478. Alternately you can contact BACCI by email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Monthly meetings are currently held at 5.30pm on the 1st Monday of each month at the RSL Bowls Club, Canal Road BALLINA .
We look forward to welcoming you to BACCI.
