How to get involved at ALL GOODS?
Come meet us!
If you are looking for a creative community space to work from, ALL GOODS has a variety of creative spaces and opportunities available to support local artists, makers and community groups. So far ALL GOODS has been a space for rehearsal, film screening, community hui, wānanga, creative and inclusive workshops, performance, exhibition and mahi.
Interested in running a creative course/workshop/event for our local communities to participate in? There are various ways we can support you in doing this, our main focus is that it is inclusive and available to communities in the Whau. Give us a shout!
We have two private spaces for more medium and long term users. These studio spaces are for artists, makers and community groups who have a project they are dreaming of or working on. We offer you a supportive and practical space to achieve your goal.
Are you looking for gallery space to curate or host an exhibition? We have a rolling programme of exhibitions in our gallery space. Lets kōrero!

Our main space has a unique layout and is great for hosting public or private occasions. As well as running our own programmes, ALL GOODS is a great venue for your next workshop, community hui, event, performance, rehearsal or birthday.
Our main space is a large open plan area with loads of natural light, double doors leading into our garden and a kitchen opening into the heart of the space. With regular artists and community groups using the space daily, and rolling art exhibitions on the walls, the space is alive and active with a local identity.
A history of ALL GOODS
ALL GOODS (round 2!) opened its doors in March 2019. Since then we have held exhibitions; hosted an Art residency; film evenings; hui on Gentrification; had numerous art project meetings and soup lunches.
The first ALL GOODS space was a home for lots of good stuff, (all about it here) and since then we’ve been looking for a new space. This new space has a history as Avondale Community Preschool and has been home to many whānau in Avondale over the last 20 years.
As much as we love popping up in laundromats, shop fronts, sports fields, Avondale markets, car parks and empty sections; to have a home means we have the opportunity to develop ideas, create and strengthen our connections in the Whau. For Whau the People, this space means we can all get on with doing cool stuff, work on quality projects and remain inclusive and experimental.
