Lot19 was founded to celebrate life

Lot19 Art Space is an evolving creative space and events venue located in the central highlands of Victoria. The property also consists of 21 artists studios, two outdoor stages, a contemporary art gallery, and an outdoor sculpture park.  We currently accommodate 28 artists in our 21 artists’ studio spaces, including Castlemaine Press, a community access print-making studio, and Castlemaine Clay, a community ceramics facility.

We are now seeking applications for a new concept, THE CHRYSALIS PROJECT, where Lot19 donate a free studio to an emerging artist of particular vigour and talent so they can pursue their craft beyond immediate financial constraints.
