KickArts Contemporary Arts was founded in 1992 by artist Garry Andrews with the support of an artists’ collective in Cairns. It was originally called Kick Arts Collective Inc., a name coined by Garry Andrews. After presenting regular exhibitions in the available venues of tropical north Queensland, KickArts established a permanent home at the Cairns Centre of Contemporary Arts in 2004, co-locating here with JUTE theatre Company. This era saw KickArts change its status from an artists’ collective to a company limited by guarantee.

Located in the central business district of Cairns, in the Centre of Contemporary Arts, KickArts is a key destination for local and tourist visitors alike who wish to experience the vibrant contemporary visual culture of Tropical North Queensland. KickArts is dedicated to facilitating, presenting and promoting contemporary arts and extending the experience and cultural life of northern Australians and more than 2.2 million annual visitors to Cairns.

Delivering a dynamic and diverse exhibition program, KickArts welcomes more than 45,,000 visitors annually. The KickArts Shop animates the Centre on a daily basis and is a focal point for viewing unique, high quality works of art, craft and design from Australian and international artists.

Entry to the galleries and shop is free.
