Case Study: M16 Artspace - Workspace A
M16 Artspace exhibitions are free to attend, however they do charge a production fee for gallery space that includes multiple benefits to exhibitors. M16 assists smaller groups who cannot afford to hire gallery space to have shows and opening nights by allowing them to hire Workspace A as a gallery while a bigger exhibition is on in the main gallery space. Not only does this reduce the cost of venue hire, it also offers cross-pollination of audience, and allows the smaller group to benefit from the food and beverages supplied for opening night and experience their own opening night.
M16 has offered this option to Hands On Studio, Palliative Care Australia, Canberra Art Workshop and numerous ACT school groups for exhibitions.
