Talk & Tea

Led by enthusiastic members of our volunteer team, the Talk & Tea program will provide an opportunity for a mid-afternoon break from our busy days. Join us for stimulating conversation about art, artists, and exhibitions while meeting others with similar interests. The volunteer facilitating the event opens the door to a world of invigorating conversations over a revitalising cup of tea. Look for this program launching soon.

Film Series

The Film Series takes place in our purpose built multimedia theatre and will feature films from around the world. The presentation films will focus on individual artists, exhibitions, or art movements, as well as occasionally becoming the art in its own right! Level-up your cultural savvy with our Film Series.
