A not-for-profit, social enterprise gallery
SPACE is a not-for-profit social enterprise art gallery and creative space in Coonabarabran NSW. SPACE was conceived and executed by Creatives Collective ARI inc. a local disability-led disabled artists’ group who believe in making opportunities, not waiting for them.
We are now a major tourist drawcard for Coonabarabran – and a must-see destination for interstate travelers.
SPACE is designed to work on the local problems of minimal local public access to arts and culture, few training and work experience opportunities for disabled and disadvantaged people, more reasons for visitors to stop with an impending bypass in the near future, long-term drought, and a stressed local economy.
Who can use
SPACE is available to all members of the community in keeping with its mission to enrich the arts and culture of Coonabarabran and its local area.
All genres of arts and crafts can be exhibited, placed on commission for sale.
Priority is given to disabled and disadvantaged artists on the very rare occasion there’s a conflict for space or time.
What days and times can i go into
SPACE is run by volunteers and as such we are not always open when we want to be.
We want to be open 10am – 2pm every day of the week, and are often open outside of those hours as well, and occasionally not open on the weekends.
