Commenced in 2019, Read the Room is an expanded literary practice space that encourages experimental writing, both on and off the page. Co-directed by Melbourne based visual artist Carmen-S Keiso and writer Kat Capel, Read the Room functions as a liaising hub for various practitioners interested in pursuing the literary form, particularly those working on the fringe of the artistic industry. We host ongoing writing workshops, experimental lectures, exhibitions and reading events independently and in collaboration with other artist-bodies. We are dedicated to both challenging and fostering a community of expanded-literary-practice within Melbourne. We are best reached via our email address [email protected] or via our instagram @readtheroom_

c3 Contemporary Art Spacec3 is a contemporary art space within the Abbotsford Convent Arts Precinct, Melbourne, Australia. Risk and experimentation is encouraged.
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.

SUBLETspace started in 2021 with first show at ENDEAVOURS smoke shop in Brunswick. It is an artist-run ‘space’ that hosts temporary showcases in various locations to support and amplify emerging artists. When you SUBLET a space, there is an ephemeral, yet active engagement with the site’s inhabitants, history, and context. We aim to support our artists by offering them a flexible platform to open their practice, their audience, and their wider community to the artistic potential that already exists in the everyday spaces we occupy.To SUBLET a space is not to invade or colonize, but to unify the threads of the art, the artist and the spaces they inhabit.
