Meeting spaces - Whether it’s outdoor gardens, cafes with shared studio spaces, or stylish conference rooms, Sydney has a lot to offer if you’re looking to hold a meeting outside of the corporate bubble. From the centre of the CBD, to Sydney Harbour and the Northern Suburbs, these venues are ready for you to hire.

Bars and restaurants - Central Sydney has a great deal of beautiful small venues, such as cafes, restaurants, coffee shops and bars. Photo shoots, movie scenes, workshops, meetings, and work very well in such spaces.

Blank canvas spaces - These in particular give you a lot of freedom when it comes to styling and furnishing the space exactly for your needs. Independent art galleries, dance studios, and many other creative studios are ready to open their doors to any creative project you could think of.

Boats - Many of the boats and yachts on the Parramatta River are available for all sorts of purposes. Business meetings, workshops, presentations, or art exhibitions - all of them can be made into a special experience by hosting them on boat venues.

How to organise your own art exhibition

  • Pick your location. Choosing the right place can make or break your exhibition. It’s important to choose a location with the right type of audience for your art. For example, setting your exhibition near a university will expose your art to a lot of students, who may enjoy different things in art than others. Make sure to know your style and who it resonates with the most.
  • Finance the exhibition. Unless you’re already a renowned artist, you are likely to need some additional strategies to fund your creative venture. Many artists organise collaborative exhibitions in order to split the costs of the hire. You can also look for sponsors - simply asking a company or art organisation that could potentially be interested through social media or email is worth a try.
  • Decide on a theme. A consistent art style or message will make your art exhibition much more interesting and valuable to your audience. While you can just make a collection of your best artworks and call it a day, it’s good to at least take into account what emotions your art is supposed to convey.
  • Curate your artwork. Based on the theme you’ve chosen, and what you think would represent you and your art best, you have to make your final picks and decide on the layout of your creative space. Use the order in which your patrons will see the paintings to tell a story and showcase your art to the best of your abilities.
  • Create a buzz. There are many different ways you can advertise your new artistic endeavour. Start with posting the invitation for your exhibition all over your social media, especially if you have a lot of artist friends and you’re involved in multiple artistic communities. If you have your own website, creating a newsletter can be a great way to inform your fans about an opportunity to see your art in person. Do not forget to do local marketing - make a nice looking sign, print some posters and pamphlets, and make sure to distribute them around the area of your creative gallery.

Booked The Lower Patio Terrace at Moore Park Golf Club
Drina was absolutely lovely, responds quickly and kept everything running smoothly. Despite an unexpected change in weather, she was able to move the event inside with no issues, resolving the issue instantly and i am so thankful for that.
