The Point Cartwright public art project was a collaboration between Jugglers, local and Jugglers artists, the Sunshine Coast community and Unitywater. As public agencies and the corporate sector catch up with our passion for public art we are delighted to have been contracted for this and the Peregian Water Tower. Joel Fergie’s [The Zookeeper] design was the standout winner in the community competition with him, Travis Vinson [lead artist] and Jordan Bruce as the painters and Peter Breen [curator/project manager].Read More
The Brighter Side is a colourful, emotional and intimate exhibition. It is honest in its exploration of both the light and dark inside all of us, depicting the contrast between internal self-talk and the external self that is shown to the world. The series embodies both empowering and destructive thoughts and pairs those thoughts with dramatic figures, colour and stroke.
As part of her exhibition Sarah Sculley held a SILENT AUCTION. With one of her artworks she generated significant awareness & fundraising for an organisation she is passionate about supporting. See details below-:Read More

The Emerging Artist Development Program with Inala Flexible Learning Centre has come to a close at Jugglers Art Space Inc. We would like to give our thanks to the beautiful young people that came along and participated in these workshops and made the space come alive! We are very grateful to artists Libby Harward, Lucks Shaare & Alex Lange for being apart of this program – their creative input and time have been invaluable. Furthermore none of this would have been possible without the love and care from devoted Inala FLC teacher Jo Campbell and Jugglers Workshop Facilitator Nina-Rae. EADP workshops are run to provide opportunities for young people to learn about varied arts practices and express themselves in a safe environment.
Thanks to our Sponsors Visible Ink for the support in making these workshops with Inala FLC possible.

- I draw every day and its physical potentials to engage with my subjective being keep my practice alive.
Where are you based?
I am based in Brisbane and Sydney. I work at the National Art School in Sydney and am a PHD candidate at the Queensland College of Art, where I have my studio.
“Last night I went to a meeting organised by #FreeTheArts to discuss how to formulate a response to Senator George Brandis’s frightening changes to the Australia Council at the Trades and Labour Council building in Peel Street, South Brisbane. Along with the director of Metro Arts , I was the only representative of the Visual Arts there as this campaign appears to be largely pushed along by the performing arts. The wonderful Sara and Norm from Feral Arts are significant leaders in Freethearts movement. The meeting was coordinated by the MEAA [Media Entertainment and Arts Alliance [Union]. This is a test case as we have seen before by conservative governments as they use the “soft target” of the arts to begin the slow but planned dismantling of our strong cultural foundations. We need to send intelligent well thought out strong hand written letters about this change to the arts to our local politicians/members and particularly marginal seats eg: Theresa Gambaro [Brisbane].
The arts are essential!”
Peter Breen.Chair/Director Jugglers Art Space Inc.

White Silence is an ongoing group exercise at Jugglers where invited artists collaborate on an interpretive response to a controlled environment of selected music and silence, usually in one of the Jugglers exhibition spaces. This is done without any verbal communication between participants. The idea is borrowed from the mystics across a range of spiritual traditions in an attempt to also create a crucible for possible moments of inexplicable presence, new understandings and epiphany. We encourage the use of these videos for private reflection and contemplation.
