Pink Ember Studio is a queer-run co-operative, creating spaces for LGBTQIA+ artists to make and sell work and be part of a community. We are a not-for-profit, encompassing a retail shop selling affordable art, workshops and classes to share skills in our community, a multimedia gallery space, and light filled open plan studio spaces.
We opened our doors in December 2018, and are striving towards making an exciting space in Coburg that supports artists and provides access to affordable art and learning opportunities. Concession rates are available for any First Nations folk who wish to partake in workshops or stock their artwork in our shop. Our shop sells art, prints, zines, books, jewellery, sculpture, clothing and gifts, and our workshop events includes embroidery, ceramics, drawing, floristry, zine-making, soft sculpture, screen printing and more.
As uninvited guests, we proudly acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land on which our shop is located and on which our resident artists do their work. Our organisation directly benefits from the oppression, dispossession and colonisation of Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander people. We pay respect to Elders, past and present. Always was, always will be Aboriginal Land.
