Introducing a FREE collaborative art studio for aspiring artists and art students

Launching Tuesday 10 Oct 2017


At The Flying Dutchman we’ve always been strong supporters of the arts. One of our missions is to provide new and emerging artists a free platform to share and promote their work. The Play Space is our latest initiative tailored to the young, thriving art community. We’ll be offering a diverse program of activities and events to support artists at the start of their career.

Let's Play!


From 10 October 2017 join a thriving, bold community of creatives and art enthusiasts/lovers/advocates! The Flying Dutchman will be open every Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday from 12pm - 12am and welcome creators of all kinds to come and use the space as a hub for creation, collaboration, exhibition and discovery. 


Free Exhibition & Creation Space

The space will be available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, & Thursdays
Creation hours: 12:00pm to 6:00pm Exhibition hours: 6:00pm to Midnight

Apply to become a resident of The Play Space!  You'll get regular publicity of your work in our social media channels/newsletter. You'll be able to take part in Resident Only art exhibitions and have priority bookings for the exhibition space as well as priority access to talks, workshops & events.


Monthly Art Challenges

We'll open up our stage and gallery to artists of all kinds to showcase, perform, and exhibit their work based around a given theme each month. Artists can submit works that relate to the monthly theme for consideration. The Play Space team will choose a select group of artists to be featured in an exclusive group exhibition each month.


Workshops, Talks & Lectures

We will curate a diverse selection of informative and unique learning opportunities for new artists and more established artists alike. Artists will not only learn, but will also have the opportunity to network, connect and collaborate with each other in and outside of their own art focus.
