IMPORTANT TO CONSIDER:

Please be aware that all exhibitions [with the exclusion of the the Jan/Feb “takeover” installations] will be up during our active season. Which means that the work installed must be conscience of our extensive monthly film/music/community programming. Exhibitions blocking the performance/seating spaces or are particularly fragile, might not be the best fit for our space. That said, we encourage you to throw us your biggest ideas! For more ideas of how the space has been used in the past please consult our Facebook bank of images!
