The Venue and accessibility

The Gallery is wheelchair accessible. Lifts are located on the Gallery’s floor in the QV centre and provide access to the QV building.
​​
​​The entrance to the Gallery is a single glass door that will be held open throughout the day (although it will be closed for our ticketed events in the evening). Staff will be there to assist if needed.​​

​​The floor of the Gallery is polished concrete and smooth. There will be a medium-sized shag rug that will take up a small part of floor space.​​

​​For the most part, the space will be bright but quiet. The exception to this is on Friday night where we will have a DJ, therefore the space will be quite loud.

Toilets
​​Accessible toilets are available on the first floor in the QV centre. Please note these toilets are not gender-neutral. A Parents Room is located on Level 1, in the Urban Market.

What else can I do while I'm in the area?

If you're in the area we suggest going to check out the QVWC Shop etc. Have a coffee at the NVG gallery and listen to a podcast, like one or this one.

I'm not in Melbourne, can I get involved?

Sure can! We'll have online events and the artwork will be available to purchase online before the event.
