Forward Bound

A roving exhibition program

Forward Bound has relaunched!
We are taking precautions and monitoring the COVID-19 situation. Visitors to Forward Bound events may be asked to provide their contact details to allow public health tracing. There will be increased signage, hand sanitiser provided and frequent cleaning of touch areas.

Thanks to our major sponsors, the City of Vincent, we are taking exhibitions out of our space and bringing them to YOU with an engaging and thought-provoking program of new creative works by early career artists. We are intervening accessible art spaces and local businesses within the City of Vincent, evoking curiosity and inviting everyone to look, touch, play and create. We can't wait to see you there!

We have a series of four events that you can get involved in:
