WAYOUT Artspace is a regionally based artist-run initiative dedicated to developing contemporary art culture through our exhibition program as well as outreach and exchange with artists and organisations across Australia.
WAYOUT Artspace is housed in the original community hall of Kandos, a 20th-century worker’s hall that has at different times served as a movie theatre, a gym, and a motorcycle museum. It is now a multi-use art and culture space, where contemporary art is created that is relevant to our regional context.
In 2022 we have run a full programme with 8 group and solo exhibitions, showcasing more than 30 regional and internationally connected artists, and our gallery space is booked out until May 2024. In our 4th annual callout we are seeking applications for 6 exhibition slots for the period April 2024 - Feb 2025.

The WAYOUT Artspace Exhibition Callout!
Artists and curators are invited to submit proposals for six week exhibitions in our 2024 exhibition schedule.
WAYOUT offers over 30 meters of wall space and a large open gallery for the exhibition of your work. Our technical and curatorial resources are limited but our committee will support you through the planning and installation of your work. We mind the gallery across the exhibition and provide an opening event, promotion, and all running costs.
The cost for a six week exhibition at WAYOUT is $500. This expenditure covers opening event costs, venue running costs including promotion, publicity, power, and services.
Interested to submit an exhibition proposal? Please fill out the online form
The deadline for your submission is 1st November 5pm 2023
WAYOUT is an artist-run initiative that is organised by an independent committee of artists.
WAYOUT’s programs are separate from the Cementa festival and its residency program.
WAYOUT is an initiative designed to provide regional artists with a platform for producing contemporary art and culture through exhibitions, special projects and activities.
WAYOUT is housed in the Cementa festival building and works to activate the space outside the festival timeframe.
This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
