Gallery Feature: The Ministry of Casual Living

The Ministry of Casual Living is a non-profit artist run centre that has been operating in Victoria since 2002. Focusing on mid-career and emerging artists, MoCL supports and exhibits all artistic disciplines, promoting an accessible venue for experimentation and integration (love that word!) of art into everyday life.
