Local Player: Abbotsford Convent

Curatorial visions and community

As presenters we travel globally to engage in incredible artistic experiences but we often don’t have the opportunity to gather and share our own curatorial visions, challenges and opportunities for collaboration and exchange.

Join Collette Brennan, CEO of Abbotsford Convent and her team for a round table discussion about the work we do every day to connect with our audiences and communities and discover like-minded colleagues and potential opportunities for collaboration around the globe.

Just four kilometres from Melbourne’s CBD and spread over 16 acres, the Abbotsford Convent – with its 11 historic buildings and gardens – is Australia’s largest multi-arts precinct.

ABOUT THE LOCAL PLAYER

Just four kilometres from Melbourne’s CBD and spread over 16 acres, the Abbotsford Convent – with its 11 historic buildings and gardens – is Australia’s largest multi-arts precinct. The former Convent of the Good Shepherd, this ex-monastic site is now owned by the Abbotsford Convent Foundation (ACF) – a not-for-profit organisation that operates the Abbotsford Convent on behalf of the public. 

Today, the Convent is home to over 100 studios, two galleries, cafes, a radio station, a school, and an abundance of green open space. Each year the Convent welcomes a diverse range of art projects, rehearsals, workshops, exhibitions, markets, events and festivals.
