After a week of mysterious ‘question marks’ appearing on the windows of No.94 Vincent St, all will be revealed over the weekend of 25th-28th of February.

The Daylesford Arts Collective (DAC) now has a home, albeit temporary, thanks to the visionary efforts a number of local artists and the assistance of several Shire Officers.

The first popup event will be hosted by several of DAC’s founding members. They are excited by the concept but well aware that it is a trial and very much experimental.

Given this, Council has backed the idea and allowed the use of the building, waived permits for A Frame sandwich boards and importantly, supported DAC¬† as a community organisation with Public Liability Insurance. “We could not be more pleased with the support we received from council,” said Steve, a DAC representative. “This might embarrass them but a big shout out to Rebecca, Lianne and Liam who have made this possible.”

The willingness of Council to waiver the usual financial requirements for these events allows the art works to be sold at prices free of commissions and overheads making original works more affordable.

“We would love to see visit us there next weekend, hopefully to buy, browse and show a little support,” added Steve.

No.94 is a small intimate space but the group see the idea growing, with new members and new spaces bringing to life those vacant spaces.
