Back to Abbotsford Convent main site

c3 presents a diverse range of public programs that run parallel to the exhibition calendar.
We are interested in creating a platform to open up the ideas and processes around creative practices and contemporary issues and are keen to engage directly and personally with our community at all levels and age groups. The gallery regularly holds floor talks, panel discussions, performances and workshops, as well as durational, participatory and relational projects that are specially developed for direct exchange.
