Exhibition dates: Sat 24 Feb - Sun 17 March
Opening times: Friday 5.30pm-8.00pm, Sat-Sun 10.00am-3.00pm


Alchemy is an exhibition which captures the ‘golden’ moments of the journey of 15 artist’s as they heal hearts and weave magic through a network of arts-based projects in response to the Black Summer Fires. Working on a series of cross disciplinary projects to build community connection across south-east Australia, their projects were creative and diverse with a focus on bringing about increased hopefulness and enhancing community spirit. The official opening will be a chance to meet some of the artists who will be performing dance, music and poetry readings.  

POETRY ARTS AND LITERATURE: Embark on a journey into the heart of Persian artistry, where the echoes of environmental stewardship, peace, love, and women’s rights resonate in every stitch and verse.

True Vibenation supported by Kopostetic


6pm-9pm |  Saturday 16 March 2024 |  $15-$20


True Vibenation combines an irresistible blend of soul and afrobeat backed by big bass, big beats and live horns. Drawing from their African heritage and raised in the cultural melting pot of Sydney, their sound takes influence in equal parts from Masego, Burns Boy and rudimental as it does from FelaKati. Fat Freddys Drop and Outkast.

Support act Kopasetic is an energetic indie-roots sextet from Canberra, dosing their audiences with earthy rhythms and earnest messages over a melting pot of modern rock-reggae, soul, blues and folk. The band thoroughly explores the limits of these genres, with bone-shaking off-beat grooves, psychedelic instrumentals and soulful ballads.
