Its been a big few weeks at Synergy Gallery, you may have been reading about it in the local paper...

In very disappointing news the City of Darebin is funding Synergy Gallery ZERO in 2011/12, which is a shock after ten years of them supporting this non-profit, community run, contemporary art space.

So, we are launching our SoS - Save our Synergy campaign and we love you to be involved!

Sunday 28th Aug 2-4pm
in the courtyard behind Synergy Gallery
253 High St Northcote.

We will be gauging how much support and energy there is for Synergy Gallery to keep going in 2012 and the future... We know the community really cares about this issue, so please come and show your support.

Since starting in 2001 we have presented over 200 exhibitions from a diverse range of artists and groups and supported nearly two thousand artists present their work. Over these years we have been grateful to be supported by council, traders and the community. Their decision to discontinue our funding is a shame as Synergy Gallery has helped make this area what it is today, such a vibrant, colourful and diverse place to live.

If you care about keeping the Arts Alive in Northcote please spread the word!

Bring a friend and come along on Sunday - bring your ideas, skills and positive energy for our arts community. We are especially looking for people would would like to become part of our committee, fundraising, promotion or management teams. Feel free to promote this in anyway you can. If you want to get involved or offer support please email: synergygallery @

We hope to see you Sunday :)
