c3 is an artist-led contemporary art space, located at the Abbotsford Convent arts and culture precinct in Narrm/Melbourne. Established in 2008, the gallery supports open, ambitious (or quiet), personal and critical approaches towards making and experiencing contemporary art. Risk, experimentation and direct audience engagement are encouraged. Central to c3 is the development of professional practice skills, mentorship and opportunities for artists/curators, and a focus on connecting critical practice with a large, diverse audience. The six-room gallery is housed in the main Convent building facing expansive gardens, Birrarung (the Yarra river) and adjacent bush parkland within its inner city location. The site has a multi-layered and complex continuing historical journey: a meeting point for the Wurundjeri and Kulin Nation peoples, settler occupation, a convent, a university, a large multi-practice creative precinct. The gallery has a reciprocal relationship with community, in that it simultaneously builds and is built by community, allowing for an open, nimble and active curatorial vision.
