The La Trobe University Visual Arts Centre is a multipurpose contemporary visual arts facility. Located in the heart of Bendigo's arts precinct, it features two galleries, two sculpture courtyards, an auditorium, a meeting room and an artist in residence apartment and studio.

In addition to an annual exhibition program that seeks to present cutting edge contemporary art, the centre aims to engage with the community through a public lecture program, artist floor-talks and residencies featuring local, national and international artists. The exhibition program includes the Facade Project, a bi-annual public art commission which transforms the facade of the building.

The Visual Arts Centre has a 90 seat tiered auditorium equipped with a laptop computer, data projector, an audio system and internet access. The auditorium can be hired for seminars and lectures and the foyer is available for stand-up receptions or can be used in conjunction with the auditorium; the foyer area opens directly onto the adjacent courtyard, which is a wonderful space for guests to linger in the warmer months. Also available for hire is a meeting room which accommodates up to 12 people and is equipped with internet facilities and a large LCD flat screen for use with a laptop. To find out more on hiring these facilities, please contact the Visual Arts Centre.
