Creative Spaces 2023-2024

Creative Spaces

Meet local artists as they showcase their artwork in a pop up gallery container!

The popular gallery container at Toukley’s Village Green provides the opportunity for the creative community to deliver installations, exhibitions, and creative workshops throughout 2023-24.

This is a dedicated space for the creative community to make, create and connect through exhibitions, installations, workshops, creative demonstrations, artist talks etc. 

Exploring the Pete Rush sculpture trail

The joy of hunting for Rush’s work is that you’ll never know where one might pop up next. He often creates and reveals work online without revealing the exact location- and following in the footsteps of his sculpture trail is a great way to get to know parts of the Central Coast you’ve never visited.
