Hatch Contemporary Arts Space

Hatch Contemporary Arts Space is permanently closed.

We were not able to farewell this respected community venue in the way we wanted, due to the global pandemic and ensuing restrictions. Still, we will find a way to do so in 2021 when we are able.

We're looking ahead with excitement and anticipation to start our next chapter at the Ivanhoe Library and Cultural Hub.

All the professional and community exhibitions, workshops, performances, residencies and everything else once hosted at Hatch will now enjoy the luxury of several dedicated spaces at our new facility.

We look forward to welcoming you to our new arts spaces and expanded arts and culture program when we can open its doors.

For the time being, while construction and efforts to ready the new building are underway, 14 Ivanhoe Parade, Ivanhoe is temporarily being used to support locals with a library click-and-collect service. 

Although this is the end of 1 chapter and the start of a new one, this page will remain in place until the end of March 2021. Reminisce and browse some of the past exhibitions hosted at Hatch.
