Campbell Arcade is a subterranean commuter laneway that runs from Flinders Street Station to Degraves Street, and home to one of Melbourne's hidden exhibition spaces.
Formerly known as Platform Art Space, now part of Creative Spaces program to revitalise and regenerate creative spaces in the city, twelve glass display cases provide opportunity for artists, creatives, makers, engineers and technology innovators to make use of the space.
The Dirty Dozen continues the tradition of providing an exhibition space for creative practitioners in Melbourne.
Applicants are encouraged to visit Campbell Arcade in person to get a clearer understanding of the location and its traffic.
