Due to reduced spread of COVID-19, Inner West Council has partly eased restrictions on the use of Council facilities including Artist Residency spaces. In accordance with the current regulations, frontyard is now open for a maximum of 26 people in the building, until further notice.

We are very happy to welcome small events back to Frontyard. Please continue to be mindful of the number of people at FY, your health and safety come first! Frontyard is active and alive in our Slack channel. Please join us! You are always welcome to drop by, hang out in the frontyard and water the plants out back.

Capacity: Unrestricted in the outdoor spaces; 11 people in the workshop space; 4 people in get-a-room A; 5 people in get-a-room B; 6 people in the library.

Frontyard is open for events and by appointment, plus last Sunday of each month 1-3pm for open house, or when listed by the librarians.

A Not-Only-Artist Run Initiative. A pro-active, flexible space for practical skills-sharing, community cultural engagement and critical research. Our aim is to challenge, facilitate and nurture collaborations between people with a passion for culture and to build a more resilient and sustainable independent arts community for the future.

Note: These are not set weekly hours. The times change every week as frontyard and its library are only open whenever librarians are available to sit the space or there is a public event booked into the calendar.
(If you have difficulty seeing the times above check the library calendar and/or the event calendar)

July 2021 Donors @ Frontyard:

Frontyard is made possible by a variety of wild contributions. We are constantly searching for better ways to acknowledge all of them. We must admit though that we have failed so far and found it is not possible to account for all this labour in terms of $$$ or individual names. The following is, therefore, necessarily a poor representation of all those contributions, every single of which is, in whatever form, equally important to the survival of this creature.
