Abbotsford Convent - The Store

Originally called the c3 Contemporary Art Space, The Store was established in June 2008 and housed in the basement of the main Convent building as the precinct’s first permanent exhibition space. Featuring an expansive exhibition space encompassing six rooms, the gallery fronted onto the precinct’s beautiful heritage gardens, providing the perfect environment for a community-driven, contemporary art space.

This room is multipurpose, and audience capacity is subject to the setup chosen by the hirer. While the capacity number below reflects the absolute maximum number of people that can fit in these dimensions, this may not be the ideal number for your event. Please speak with the Convent team about your event requirements and a more appropriate capacity that caters to this setup.
