Visual Arts

It’s a rare thing to have a space dedicated to LGBTIQ+ culture and it is with immense excitement and pride that we launch the visual arts program at the Pride Centre. The Pride Centre provides opportunities for visual arts and archival exhibitions and displays that focus on art by LGBTIQ+ artists and/or art that focuses on LGBTIQ+ issues. See our current exhibitions and an archive of past works below.

Visual arts activations and exhibitions at the Pride Centre are determined through an Expressions Of Interest process, assessed by a Visual Arts Selection Panel of volunteer arts professionals. Please keep an eye on the website and socials for information about the next round of EOIs. For further information, please email
