From January 2022-June 2024, the Dunedin Community Gallery (DCG) was managed by the Dunedin Fringe Arts Trust (DFAT) on behalf of the Dunedin City Council (DCC). Fringe facilitated access to the space, supporting Ōtepoti’s diverse creative community to present projects in the gallery. 


The Dunedin Community Gallery is at 26 Princes Street. The maximum capacity is 160 people, including your team (or 120 if alcohol is being served). Up to date hire fees will be provided by Ara Toi.

The gallery can be booked by arts organisations, community groups and other cultural practitioners.

Primarily an exhibition space, the Dunedin Community Gallery is a blank-canvas shop-front room with large windows on busy Princes Street.
