This Must Be The Place
8/694 Ann St, Bakery Lane

This Must be the Place (TMBTP) is not an art gallery, an art book store, a jewellery workshop, a drop-in work space, or casual venue-for-hire—it is all of these. The venue’s fit out and furniture (a ping pong table, folding chairs, movable walls) allow the space to quickly transform to support what’s happening right now. The space supports a wide range of uses, making TMBTP less about the walls and more what happens between them. It doesn't matter what brings you to the venue, TMBTP is the place.
