Celebrating First Nations art and culture in the heart of Victor Harbor

8th August 2022
When was the last time you popped into Coral Street Art Space (Tumbi Tjil-Urma Yiti)?

In March, Council endorsed the installation of a permanent, ongoing First Nations exhibition space at Coral Street Art Space in Victor Harbor's Mainstreet Precinct. Since then, significant work has been underway to get the exciting new exhibition space up and running.

This newly re-designed gallery provides room for our Ramindjeri and Ngarrindjeri community to exhibit individual work, run weaving and painting workshops, and to collectively offer connection to language and story.

The area will also allow opportunities for both locals and visitors to engage with dynamic and high quality visual, auditory and tactile exhibitions initiated by First Nations artists and creatives.

A number of changes have already been made since March to enable the permanent, ongoing First Nations exhibition space, and more work will be completed over the coming months as the installation is finalised.

Additionally, new hired studio spaces for local artisans and artists will soon be introduced to support the business development of Coral Street Art Space. These studio spaces are set to facilitate professional development opportunities for local artists and creatives, while also fostering partnerships with creative industries.

If you haven't checked out the work that's been completed already, visit 10 Coral Street between 10am - 4pm, Thursday - Tuesday.
