Gallery Submissions


The Firehall Gallery is a unique brick faced gallery space located in the lobby of the Firehall Arts Centre. The Firehall has an active schedule of performances and festivals of contemporary dance, theatre and multidisciplinary work and the Lobby Gallery provides exposure to a diverse audience.

The Firehall is currently inviting proposals from emerging and established artists for exhibitions during the our 2021/2022 season. We are particularly interested in work that engages with contemporary issues of diversity and community. We welcome all 2-dimensional work, but unfortunately we cannot exhibit video works at this time. Due to current resources, the gallery space is only available for viewings at this time to our patrons, before and after shows.

Firehall will take 25% commission from sales.
