Thursday - Sunday 10am-5pm


Bundoora Homestead Art Centre is where contemporary art and Australian history collide.  A home for creative thinking, community participation and contemporary arts practice, where artist and audience are engaged, welcomed, challenged, and where they are empowered to contribute to a conversation about the issues of our time and place, all within a rich historical heritage. We recognise that art and culture are vital to the well-being of individuals and communities.

The Mess space at Bundoora Homestead Art Centre is available for hire Wednesday – Sunday 10am -5pm each week for activities that meet the Homestead’s booking criteria and contribute to our purpose and vision. These activities include (but are not limited to): Community meetings, conferences, book clubs, art classes, craft clubs, language classes, playgroups, dance rehearsals, yoga classes, theatre or music rehearsals, exhibitions and plays (within limitations).

Please note: Bundoora Homestead Art Centre is undertaking a six month trial utilising The Mess gallery as a venue hire space until December 2019. At the end of this period visitor and client feedback will assist us to assess whether this is a successful model to implement permanently. At that time all fees and charges will be reviewed by Darebin Council.
