LOT 19 & COVID 19

Lot19 is committed to the safety of our community and our artists. We will follow all the guidelines around Covid safety. Look forward to seeing you, be safe!


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 have recently received a w-class tram, 1035, and are extremely grateful to VicTrack. We look forward to presenting a generous arts program in and around the tram. We welcome conversations about the tram, and tram life, as well as suggestions about how to best enjoy this fabulous piece of our recent history.
