Apply for an Exhibition


We’re currently seeking artists, creatives and collectives for our Feb – August 2020 program across two exhibition spaces.

As a not-for-profit community arts organisation we are committed to supporting artists to create and share new projects, so we welcome applications from a broad range of artists, curators, writers, performers, community groups, and collectives at ALL stages of their career. Schoolhouse Gallery values artistic risk-taking; welcoming experimental artworks still in development. We encourage interdisciplinary, new media, performance and experiential works. 

Schoolhouse Gallery encourages discursive and laterally-minded approaches to using space. We invite using space outside of the traditional white-cube gallery settings. Including applications for performances, one off events, screenings, workshops and whatever else you want to throw at us!
