The Performance Space is a stunning, contemporary space suitable for a variety of purposes including conferences, film screenings, rehearsals, performances, meetings, expos, corporate presentations, forums, training and seminars. The venue contains a retractable, raked seating bank however seated capacity can be increased by adding rows of seats on the floor in front of the seating bank. The space has theatrical audio and lighting capabilities, as well as a mounted data projector and screen. The wooden floor is fully sprung, making it suitable for dance and physical activity. The stained plywood walls are lined with sound-absorbing black drapes which can cover all walls if desired. A small dressing room is directly attached to the space. The Performance Space opens into a large, light-filled reception area.

Footscray Community Arts is located on the banks of the Maribyrnong River and can be accessed by public transport and car.
