Supporting artists with intellectual disabilities through our studio and gallery, promoting their work and advocating for their inclusion in contemporary art practice.



— 11 June 2021 —

At this stage, Arts Project Australia’s Collingwood gallery and Northcote stockroom must remain closed to the public, however, we are offering clients who purchase work a ‘click and collect’ service on a Friday and Saturday until further notice.

With regard to the studio, we are following DHHS guidelines and the Arts Project studio will re-open next Tuesday 15 June with all normal COVIDsafe restrictions in place (compulsory mask-wearing, social distancing etc.). Please note, APA is closed Monday for the public holiday.

Everyone entering our Northcote or Collingwood locations must sign in using the QR code on site until further notice. A reminder also that all NDIS participants, their carers and support workers can now access the COVID-19 vaccination. 

For more information about COVID-19 vaccination please visit the Department of Health website. And, here is a short video that explains what is involved with having a vaccination if you are unsure. We are looking forward to seeing artists in person next week.  Please don’t hesitate to call or email us at  [email protected]roject.org.au. if you have any queries.

While the physical gallery is closed until further notice, the APA website has many virtual offerings. This includes an online presentation of the current exhibition 4 x 4 Artist Solos featuring artworks by Rebecca Scibilia, James MacSporran, Samraing Chea and Monica Lazarri as well as installation photography and a catalogue price list. The gallery team are also contactable via email and mobile:  0477 211 699 / [email protected]

As always, we are looking toward the latest news and health advice and will make adjustments as needed. 

Stay safe.
