Connection Arts Space (CAS) is a community-focused arts organisation based in the City of Greater Dandenong. Since 2015, CAS has been run by a diverse team of passionate volunteers who share a belief in the power of art and community connection. Based in the most multicultural municipality in Australia, CAS prioritises artists of asylum seeker and migrant background. Through exhibitions, art workshops, and collaborative projects, CAS provides an opportunity for local artists and art lovers to share stories, create connections, and challenge traditional ways of thinking.
The Connection Arts Space vision is for ‘a community that fosters creativity, collaboration and leadership through the arts’.
The Connection Arts Space missions are as follows
COMMUNITY – Nurture the arts and strengthen connections within local communities.
ACCESSIBILITY – Foster opportunities and pathways in the arts to engage new audiences.
SUSTAINABILITY- Strengthen the economic viability of the arts.
