Key programs

The Convent supports and presents diverse contemporary arts practice—we are passionate about working collaboratively with artists and in partnership with other arts and cultural organisations to attract diverse audiences, creating new conversations and ways to engage with our unique, multi-use precinct. The Convent’s non-traditional spaces encourage deep artistic investigation and provide an atmospheric setting for performance. If you’re an artist, arts organisation, or an educational organisation with an arts and cultural focus, and believe that you have a program suited to a partnership or collaboration with the Convent, please get in touch with our Producer, Natalie Smith.
