Inside Out is a year-long program that invites you to shift your experience of the Potter by exploring the artistic opportunities that exist both inside and outside of our galleries.

Soon, we’ll be taking Inside Out to the Mornington Peninsula – because what better way to encourage a true connection with creativity than through art, wine and an idyllic setting. Our intention? To give you the opportunity to engage with art and ideas outside of the usual context of the gallery space.
