That's right!  You can get your art exhibited in 2014 on the Community Project Wall (CPW). So how does the Community Project Wall work?

The Community Project Wall (CPW) is located within the side foyer of the new Town Hall Gallery.  Spanning just over 20 metres, this space is available for local community groups, local and emerging artists and schools to exhibit a series of two-dimensional works to a wide audience.

The CPW is suitable for:

  • school groups
  • small arts organizations, such as displays that have resulted from workshops
  • historical groups
  • libraries
  • organizations wanting to display for a particular week - i.e youth week.
  • local emerging artists
  • local unrepresented artists
