For years, you’ve always wanted to try and do ‘something’ in a gallery. Ya know, try out that idea which you and Fred had about turning a gallery space into a festival for rock aerobics or a meeting point for a lovers laughing club… Or maybe try that thing with the cardboard mountains, only differently. It’s been a deep desire of yours. In fact, it’s right up there with learning just enough Lute to perform at the Substation. But you’ve also heard stories about artists and creative folks without a space. You’ve heard about the pains and agonies of applying for a venue.

Well, you’re in luck! Action Parties is back and, this time, the kind people of dbl O have given us their art space for one weekend and we’re going to give it to you! We’re looking for 6 engaging ‘actions’ to be fulfilled over 7 and 8 July. The quirkier and more interesting the interpretation of this – the better.

All proposals should be emailed to us at by 20 June. Successful applicants will be notified by 22 June. For further enquiries or to engage in a discussion, please email Joleen at  See below for detailed information before applying!


Find us on Facebook here.


1. Before submitting a proposal, please refer to the pages below for details of the gallery space, including floor plan, as well as rules for using the gallery. Actions carried out should comply to these rules.

2. For the duration of Action Parties, the gallery becomes a public space; therefore actions proposed should be non-chargeable/ticketed. Funds however, can be collected from voluntary members of the audience.

3. As an independent initiative, Wunderspaze or Joleen is not in a position to provide funds or material resources for activities proposed. Instead, applicants should propose ideas that they can carry out fully on their own. This includes equipment provision and advanced technical support.

4. Successful applicants should be aware that they are fully responsible for the actions they plan to carry out, which includes care of the gallery space. Wunderspaze or Joleen will not be liable for any damages done to the gallery space.

5. All applicants should submit a brief outline of their proposed project (roughly 250 words) as well as a written profile. Samples of past works/projects would be useful for our evaluation.

6. Although Wunderspaze will provide publicity support, our resources at the moment are limited. Hence we appreciate it when participants also drum up their own publicity machine in addition to ours.

7. Eventual action-takers must agree to participate in all media publicity efforts initiated by Wunderspaze.
