The Project

The Byron Community Centre is offering artists an opportunity to create and exhibit temporary public works as part of a rotation of short-term outdoor exhibitions. We’ve created an engaging new space for artists to experiment with new formats, showcase their work, engage in cultural exchange and access new audiences while creating a vibrant active public art space.

The project is sponsored by Byron Bay Mitre 10. It is on display at the Coffee BOX, located between the Post Office and the Community Centre. Open hours are 8:30-1:30pm – Monday to Saturday. The Coffee BOX cafe is a social enterprise that sells coffee to the public while training and supporting local women to move out of disadvantage and homelessness.

Find out more about the project by contacting Gallery Coordinator Shanti Des Fours: coffeebox@byroncentre.com.au.

The First Exhibit

The first round of works are by Verity Nunan, her works offer a moving insight into the people who live in public space in Byron Bay.

“These are the storylines of all the members of the community that I have met through my research. I wanted to tell a bigger story about the Byron Shire and the incredible amount of people who live in the bush or depend on public space to survive…” – Verity.
