The Butter Factory Arts Centre is located in the Noosa hinterland at Cooroy, in a converted old butter factory that was built in 1930. The butter factory closed in 1975 and was purchased by Noosa Council for use as a community centre in 1991. In 2016 Noosa Council handed the management of the centre over to the community. The Butter Factory Arts Centre is run by the Cooroy Future Group as an exhibition, workshop and events venue, which also includes a separate pottery studio.
The Butter Factory Arts Centre aims to provide a friendly and supportive environment to both new and established artists working in any media. We welcome exhibition proposals from artists, collectives and curators for group or solo exhibitions in a single one, or combination of our gallery spaces. We are committed to aiding artists in their experimentation and growth, as well as bringing exciting work to the public. The gallery strives to create a sense of community amongst both exhibitors and viewers; a place where the arts are accessible and dynamic. The Butter Factory Arts Centre is staffed and assisted by Cooroy Future Group volunteers.
