Various community initiatives have been born from the creative minds of the BSA crew over the years, such as The BSA Project Space, Art in the Pub and the BSA Ralph Woodford Residency.


A Byron School of Art initiative in collaboration with c.a.s.e. inc. (Contemporary Art Space and Education). One Monday night a month a visiting artist or art professional joins us at the The Court House Hotel in Mullumbimby to talk about their practice.

These are free events open to the public. Click here to see our program.

The BSA Project Space is a contemporary exhibition space located inside a repurposed industrial workshop that sits within the headquarters and studios of the Byron School of Art (BSA) in Mullumbimby, NSW. Since its founding in 2014 the space has functioned as both a springboard for students of the BSA who wish to gain experience in professional exhibition practice, and as a space for the curation of exhibitions across a diverse range of disciplines. The BSA Project Space aims to support the development of a diverse range of artistic practices from our region and beyond including 2D and 3D works, installation, digital media and more. Other initiatives supported by BSA Project Space include talks by exhibiting artists, curators and visiting art organisations.



The Byron School of Art Ralph Woodford Residency is a residency program for contemporary artists working in a range of disciplines.

Artists are provided with accommodation and a studio space located in the Byron Bay hinterland. The quiet, idyllic location provides a contemplative living space and studio for artists to work and carry out research away from the ongoing commitments of everyday living.

This new initiative aims not only to foster and support artistic development of individual artists, but also to bring critically engaging contemporary work to our community and to the Byron School of Art (BSA).
