Opportunities for artists and community groups

Are you an artist looking to exhibit your work or a member of a community group looking for a performance venue? Explore some of the ways we support local creativity.

Community Project Wall

The Community Project Wall is located within Hawthorn Arts Centre in the side foyer of the Town Hall Gallery. Spanning close to 30 metres, this is a free exhibition space available to local community groups, local and emerging artists and schools to exhibit a series of two-dimensional works to a wide audience.

Exhibitions are selected through an annual application call-out. Each exhibition lasts approximately 1 month and there are 12 exhibitions per year.

Applications for 2019 are now closed.

Community Arts Venue Grants

Our venues are full of exciting and accessible spaces that Boroondara-based artists and community members can apply to use free of charge (conditions apply).

If you have a creative project, performance season, exhibition, event, workshop or anything else your imagination desires, you may be eligible for in-kind support at Hawthorn Arts Centre or Kew Court House.

Applications open annually in ongoing rounds.
