Looking for a change of scenery while you hit the books? aMBUSH Gallery Kambri has opened its doors as a study space.

We all know the saying ‘A change is as good as a holiday’, and with holidays as we know them currently off the cards, aMBUSH Gallery Kambri are adding an element of fun into daily life by inviting students into their gallery to study.

aMBUSH is much more than a physical exhibition space – it’s a hub where you can crack into your uni work in the company of art, music and big ideas. Located on the second floor of the Cultural Centre (above Harry Hartog Booksellers), there are floor to ceiling windows that flood the space in natural light, plus neighbouring retailers to keep you fed and caffeinated, and furniture with charging stations to settle into comfortably as you listen to your lectures.

It’s also a great way to take some time out to view the current exhibition – a retrospective of Australian street art that is part of the aMBUSH Collection, showcased in the groundbreaking Outpost Project – the biggest street art festival in the world – on Cockatoo Island in 2011.

If the idea of a change of environment appeals, simply turn up to aMBUSH Gallery during their normal hours of 10 to 6pm weekdays and 12 to 5pm on Saturdays and Sundays. There’s no need to book – simply sign in and choose your spot.

You can enjoy the serene atmosphere with low level, laid-back music providing the perfect backdrop, and if you BYO cup there’s even free tea and coffee. (Food can be brought in but must be consumed on the undercover balcony area).

As an added bonus, Vessel Collective will be conducting free one-on-one DJ tutorial sessions on equipment use on Fridays and Saturdays (contact them direct via their Facebook page or email for more information).

Normal social distancing rules apply, as do all the standard hygiene measures. The space is cleaned regularly and thoroughly, and hand sanitiser is available. For those looking for a quieter study space, some tables and chairs will also be set up in the hallway next to the gallery.

Whether it’s a quick meeting, hanging with your friends or a whole day of study on the cards, come and pull up a seat amongst the art and like-minded people – the friendly crew from aMBUSH Gallery look forward to seeing you there!
