We currently have a small studio available located in the writer’s wing of the Convent Building. The cosy studio is 10 square metres overlooking a tree-lined courtyard. Whilst small, the old nun’s dormitories have a cathedral height ceiling window affording plenty of natural light. The space would ideally suit a writer whose practice is desk based and only requires a smaller, light filled space.
The tenancy offers access to shared kitchenette facilities, bathrooms and showers, as well as discounted car parking. Rooms are self-contained, lockable and have hydronic heating.
Sitting alongside the Yarra Capital Trail, the Convent is easily accessible on bike or via public transport.
Onsite you’ll also find an assortment of delicious food options, markets, two galleries, venues, and an extensive program of events and workshops all at your doorstep. The Convent is also home to some of Melbourne’s finest creatives, organisations and wellbeing practitioners, making this the ultimate place for collaboration and community engagement.
