Creative Space in North Curl Curl was conceived for emerging or established artists who need studio space, and for curators, groups and individuals who need an exhibition venue. Creative Space is an affordable, professional arts facility on the Northern Beaches where you can show your work and connect with the community.
Who can use the gallery?
The gallery is for artists and curators holding solo or group exhibitions. We may have the capacity for one-off workshops, but not functions or regular activities. We provide technical know-how and promotional support, plus access to facilities and equipment.
Take a look at our gallery hire terms and conditions.
The Creative Space is accessible, with kitchenette, toilets and outdoor area. Equipment available includes a ladder, 10 tables, 45 chairs, 45 stools, exhibition lights, trolley, around 110 cables and 200 hooks, and various plinths. The space is unstaffed, so please make sure you have appropriate minders during your open times.
