window99 was an installation space in the window of 99 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy. It was a not-for-profit, artist focused space, open 24 hours a day, everyday.
window99 offer an alternative to exhibiting art within the white cube by moving the gallery into the public setting. This also provided artists with an opportunity to exhibit their work within a highly exposed, flexible window box for an affordable rate.
The New Venture
window99 has now resolved with a new space three doors up being the next venture for Marie and Leo. The new initiative is called Conduit Arts and continues the window99 and Rollerdoor Performance Space focus on bringing emerging artists, musician and performers together along with their audiences.

Get Paid to Make Art!
This highly visible wall can be seen by tram sitters, riders, drivers and walkers up and down Brunswick Street as well as by the traffic down Palmer Street. The wall is 12metres (high) by 4.5metres (wide). The artist will benefit from the exposure as well as directly from the commission we raise through Pozible. Check the profile here POZIBLE!
Opposite WINDOW99 is The Brotherhood of St Laurence. "The Brotherhood works not just to alleviate poverty but to prevent it". With the Fitzroy office specifically aiming to "strengthen the capacity of new and emerging communities to become active participants in the social and economic life of Australia". More info can be found at BROTHERHOOD
INVOLVEMENT worth $1,000
As this is a large project in partnership with the Brotherhood there are a few steps required to be selected as the artist. First we would love to receive an Expression of Interest (stating info below), we will then select 2-3 artist who will come along to a briefing at the Brotherhood where a more detailed description of the work will be discussed. The artist will then submit a final description and illustration of the artwork along with equipment requirements. The final artist and work will then be selected and the FUN can begin!
The project will cover costs of paint and equipment and deal with all permits needed for the completion of the work. The artist will then receive the final commission for the project, which is aimed at being $1,000.
Project paint date is aimed at taking place during the month of November 2011 with the specific date to be discussed and confirmed with The Brotherhood and the artist.
