What We Provide

POME is a multi-arts exhibition, live music and performing arts bar and retail space. We provide a revolutionary business model and inclusive facilities for artists and patrons to experience magnificent events and purchase art.

POME will provide Q&A experiences with all artists during their exhibitions. Experiences include visual art, music, fashion, literature, cinema experiences and performance art.

POME provides an ideal photographic studio and launch space for hire.

Handpicked artisan products are for sale 7 days a week, including furniture, jewellery, soaps, candles, canned and preserved foods and selected alcohol products that celebrate innovative and underrepresented masters of their craft.

POME will be developing special limited edition, collectible artist designed labels for specific and custom wine and spirits.

How We Operate

Think your favourite record or bookstore together with in-store performances, screenings, exhibitions, fashion parades, book readings and Q&A sessions with artists who have artworks and workshops for sale.

All experiences are paired with the unique Q&A sessions from the artists on display – all explaining the history, meanings and unique processes the artists go through to make their artworks.

These intimate artist experiences enable patrons an exclusive insight into the creative process, hoping to provide a rich and educational experience for the patrons and a growing fanbase for the artist. POME encourages people to come in and share an experience, not limited to art for sale and bar services, but a unique glimpse into the arts industry at large.

Sidney Shaw

Communications Manager & Arts Publicity
I am a creative person and I have always gravitated towards a-typical employment where I can utilise my creative as well as my professional skills. I’m enthusiastic about bringing diverse and otherwise unseen art into a bigger limelight and the opportunity for developing a rewarding career path in a creative environment.

Georgia Stringer

Artist Liaison & Operations Coordinator
I am a devoted representative of Melbourne’s arts and music scene, wholeheartedly support local talent in its many forms and love nothing more than discovering the potential in people. I believe consuming art is a fundamental human need, and my greatest joy in both my professional and personal life comes from watching people’s dreams actualised through creative expression.
