Southern Phone Grant Helps Art Space


Serving coffee on the cards for Project Contemporary Artspace

Wollongong’s thriving art community know it well but soon Project Contemporary Artspace will also be the hip place to be to enjoy a great coffee. And, if Rebecca O’Shea and Emma Burrows have their way the popular Wollongong gallery in Keira Street will also one day extend its premises to offer an outdoor space where visitors and artists can enjoy a coffee. But for the time being the duo are ecstatic that Project will soon have a kitchen thanks in large part to a $10,000 grant from Southern Phone.

‘’At the moment we only have a little sink. We are really excited that we will finally have a kitchen,’’ Project Contemporary Artspace vice-president Ms Burrows said.‘’We have been here for 20 years and never had hot water let alone a kitchen. Now that is about to happen we plan on offering coffee. Hopefully if we build it they will come. We are close to a lot of businesses and there is always artists and visitors floating around.’’

President Ms O’Shea added there were plenty of Wollongong cafes which featured art works but Project could become the city’s first small gallery serving coffee on a regular basis. Project is one of the five community groups in Wollongong City chosen to share in a $25,000 grant provided by telecommunications provider Southern Phone
