The Belmont Arts Collaborative (BAC) exists to provide artists and arts organizations the opportunity to create, learn, and perform in a dedicated performing arts space. We are located in the historic Belmont neighborhood of Charlottesville, Virginia, just a few blocks from the Downtown Mall. The 2300 square foot space -- with a black box theater that seats up to 99 people -- adjoins a suite containing three rehearsal studio spaces. Belmont Arts Collaborative fills the community need for small arts organizations to have access to an affordable and inclusive space to perform and provides resources -- that include promotional support, an awareness platform and ticketing system -- to help them thrive. This space encourages collaboration between arts organizations to provide community-building projects. The Belmont Arts Collaborative benefits the community by providing an accessible and inclusive place that provides exposure to the arts, arts education and a space for the community to come together.
