Is there a way to allow anonymous access to one space and not the entire confluence instance

I would like to use one space as a client-facing wiki within our Confluence instance that allows anonymous, read-only access. My issue with setting global anonymous access is that it looks like that would allow anyone who is not logged in to view all of the content on our Confluence instance which won't work due to confidential info. Is there a way to grant anonymous access to just on space?

Thank You!

Agree with Timothy but you need to first turn On anonymous access globally, under global permissions. You can then provide anonymous access to selected spaces at space level.

If the anon access is not provided at space level, others won't be able to see it.
