The Ministry of Art is a unique and dynamic space in St. Kilda that specialises in exhibiting, promoting and building the careers of emerging and mid-career contemporary Australian artists.

It doubles as an excellent space to host all manner of events, from art exhibitions to birthdays, cocktail parties and even sit down dinner events. Whether you wish to exhibit your art, hire the entire venue for a special occasion or utilise the space for corporate team building events or product launches, the versatility and layout of the space is sure to impress both you and your guests.

The Ground floor of the main gallery area is available for exclusive hire which boasts 65 square meters of usable space that can accommodate up to 100 people for a cocktail style event.

Ministry of Art is a very flexible space with fully functioning kitchen facilities, ample refrigeration, toilets as well as tables and chairs. Catering can be arranged through the venue’s local suppliers or alternatively, you can choose to self-cater from your favourite company.

Why not hang paintings to enhance the theme of your function or party? The only requirement is that their security is to be present at all events for insurance purposes.
