2025 Pride Gallery Visual Arts Program Exhibition EOI’s Now Open

Expressions of interest to exhibit at the Victorian Pride Centre Gallery in 2025 are now open. Applications will be assessed by the Visual Arts Curator and a volunteer selection panel of LGBTIQ+ artists and arts workers.

The Victorian Pride Centre is a welcoming, inclusive, and respectful space for all LGBTIQ+ communities and their allies.  Our vision is a world where every LGBTIQ+ person has a place where they are welcomed, valued, respected and celebrated. Our purpose is to connect, support and amplify LGBTIQ+ voices, resources, services and groups so that our communities are cohesive, resilient and thrive. 

The Pride Centre’s visual arts programming has a focus on artwork/s by LGBTIQ+ artists and/or art that focuses on LGBTIQ+ issues. Visual arts at the Pride Centre reflects the diversity of LGBTIQ+ communities and is a catalyst for dialogue both within the LGBTIQ+ community and with the wider community.  

The Pride Centre provides opportunities for visual arts and archival display through programming gallery exhibitions and the display of artworks in other suitable spaces within the Pride Centre. The Pride Gallery is programmed by the Visual Arts Curator and a voluntary advisory group of LGBTQI+ artists and art workers.
