Micro Grants Recipient | Byron School of Art
Byron School of Art (BSA) is an independently run, non-profit tertiary art school based on an international model of artists teaching artists. With a primary focus on studio-based learning, BSA also offers education through an integrated approach to professional exhibition practice and community-engagement.
The BSA Project Space is a contemporary exhibition space located inside a repurposed industrial workshop that sits within the headquarters and studios of the Byron School of Art (BSA) in Mullumbimby, NSW. Since its founding in 2014 the space has functioned as both a springboard for students of the BSA who wish to gain experience in professional exhibition practice, and as a space for the curation of exhibitions across a diverse range of disciplines.
As the effects of COVID-19 began to close public venues Byron School of Art and the BSA Project Space needed to close also. During this time BSA remodelled their windows space into a makeshift gallery called the BSA Project Space Drive-in Gallery which has allowed them to show previews of exhibitions currently on hold. The Micro Grants funding opportunity will help to allow for a professional remodelling of this space.
