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 open. Applications close on 29 June 2018.
