Venue Hire

The gallery may be available as a venue to complement the many hire spaces available within the Ararat Town Hall.

The gallery's abiding focus is protecting the artworks we have on display and in our care. As always, availability of spaces is dependent on collection, exhibition and programming considerations.

Therefore, spaces may be available for hire for intimate events such as book launches, policy and program announcements and professional gatherings that align with the gallery's purpose and brand.

The gallery's Art Craft Workshop is available to hire and is perfect for creative activities, meetings and social occasions.

The gallery's exhibition spaces are not available to hire for displays or exhibitions.
