About JCAA – Joondalup Community Arts Association

 Join the JCAA – Just $40 per year 

The Joondalup Community Arts Association (JCAA) is a volunteer non-profit organisation. The JCAA supports and nurtures local appreciation and involvement in the arts. It gives artists a way to share their works and their views with like-minded people, to learn from each other, to elevate the importance of art and artists in the local community.

The JCAA is funded by membership fees and fees it charges for hiring the JAG and workshop. The City of Joondalup generously makes the JAG available to the JCAA free of charge. In return, the JCAA manages the gallery. Government grants are sometimes available for specific JCAA projects.

Artists (or art lovers) are encouraged to become members of the JCAA. Just submit the online JCAA Membership Application Form. In response, we will send you details on how to pay the membership fee. Once received, we’ll send you your membership card which entitles you to a range of benefits.
