Community Arts & Cultural Development

M16 Artspace is excited to announce we are now accepting applications for the second half of our 2024 exhibition program.

With three gallery spaces, 31 artist studios, and a community arts hub, M16 Artspace is the perfect place to connect with other creatives and share your work with a wider audience. We pride ourselves on presenting high-quality exhibitions from both emerging and established artists and curators, both from Canberra and beyond.

We are looking for innovative proposals that push the boundaries of traditional art forms and explore new artistic territory. We welcome proposals from all cultural producers, including artists, collectives, collaborators, writers, and curators at all career levels. Proposals for exhibitions could include painting, sculpture, installation, sound, performance, film, and video works; supported by talks, reading groups, artist interviews, writing, classes, and panel discussions.

We strongly encourage applications from First Nations artists, d/Deaf and disabled artists, and artists of different genders, sexualities and cultural backgrounds.

*Currently accepting proposals for exhibitions in August, September and October 2024.*
