Off the Kerb is a Melbourne-based Artist Run Initiative, which fosters and exhibits emerging to mid-career Australian Artists, Curators, Designers and Sound Producers. Founded by Shini Pararajasingham in 2007, Off the Kerb is run by a small group of creative minds.

Located in the heart of Collingwood, Off the Kerb offers Melbourne a unique gathering of experimental and commercial contemporary art and creative practices. The small team nurtures emerging artists, helping them further develop their practice. This is where we are unique, as we are a developmental space, we focus on propelling new and upcoming talent further into the public arena. The committeeโ€™s continuous professional development is an additional core competency of Off the Kerb.ย We are an ARI that is constantly moving forward in Melbourneโ€™s art scene.
