Project Contemporary Artspace is a not-for-profit organisation that has been operating since March 1995.
The Gallery is managed by a small group of volunteers.
Project began as the vision of three graduates from the University of Wollongong Fine Arts course - Lisa Havilah, Glen Barkley and Nathan Clarke.
They recognised that there was no suitable space for local artists to exhibit and perform their work.........and so, Project Contemporary Artspace became an Incorporated Association in 1995.
The Project team received funding to convert an old building in Keira Street into an art gallery. A site plan/ environmental impact statement was developed by local artist, Moira Kirkwood. The application was approved by Wollongong Council in May 2004.
Without the hard work and determination of the founding members and early committee members, Project would not be what it is today.
Subsequent committees made up entirely of volunteers, have worked tirelessly to provide exhibition and performance opportunities to Wollongong creatives.
Project is seen as a beautiful, unique & professional Gallery where artists and visitors always are welcome and made to feel valued.
