Open Spaces transforms the Convent’s historic spaces with an impressive program of live music, visual art, contemporary dance, literature and good food. Showcasing the best of the Convent’s on-site talent and wider arts community, Open Spaces is a celebration of multi-disciplinary arts, culture and collaboration. The Art Trail is a promenade multi-arts experience central to Open Spaces. It is a series of contemporary art works installed / presented in unusual spaces throughout the Convent’s heritage buildings and gardens.
Abbotsford Convent are currently calling for applicants to be part of the 2016 Art Trail. They are looking for new and exciting works, but the form can be anything (almost!). We are interested works which connect to the site and inspire, intrigue and challenge our audiences. They are particularly interested in projects which are free, participatory and / or can be accessed by diverse audiences, including the young and young at heart.
