Forward Bound

A roving exhibition program

COVID-19: In the interest of the health and safety of our artists and arts community, the Forward Bound program is currently on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We will continue to do all we can to support the program artists and we thank everyone who has come along or taken part in Forward Bound to date. See Paper Mountain's full COVID-19 statement here.

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:
