Art Gallery
“Most venues fall neatly into a category, whether it’s cafe, art gallery, event space or community hub – Dust Temple is not one of those places. Tucked away in the industrial corridor in Currumbin, Dust Temple is a cafe, art gallery and community hub. Catch up for a morning meeting or cast your eye over the current exhibition from a local or international artist. By night the place transforms into a space for theatre, live music, performance, social gatherings, meet-the-artist events, live-drawing classes, poetry and even wax lyrical comps. ”
