Fontanelle is a contemporary arts organisation that opened in April 2012. It provides an incubator for South Australian emerging, mid-career and established artists, curators and writers to work, take risks, engage in dialogue and debate, and exhibit. Fontanelle is managed by Plan B Art Projects, a not for profit incorporated association established in 2011. Setting up Fontanelle has been a two-year process; Director Brigid Noone brought together a hands-on artist run committee, including Ben Leslie, Mary-Jean Richardson along with gallery interns and volunteers. The committee is actively involved in the planning, development and management of the space and its projects, the gallery program and operations are managed and curated by Brigid Noone and Ben Leslie. Fontanelle has had significant in-kind and financial support from Renewal SA (previously the Urban Renewal Authority) who has provided the building at a subsidised rent in order to support the development of the Bowden area as a new, progressive and vibrant community in a semi-industrial inner city suburb.
