A unique opportunity exists to join Australia’s largest creative community. Just four kilometers from the CBD, the Convent – with its historic buildings and lush surrounds – has become an inner-city sanctuary for creative practitioners and organisations seeking a peaceful, yet vibrant working environment.
We currently have an artist’s studio available in the Western corridor of the Convent Building. The light filled studio is 15 square metres with a cathedral height ceiling window affording plenty of natural light. The studio is carpeted. Room facilities include power points, phone point, hydronic heating, sink and cabinetry. Rooms are self-contained and lockable. The space would ideally suit a creative practitioner such as a painter, printmaker or other maker whose practice does not create impactful noise. The tenancy also offers access to shared kitchenette facilities, bathrooms and showers, as well as discounted car parking.
Building amenities include a lift, stairwell, conference rooms and security doors. Site amenities include a 300 space car park, ATM, cafes, galleries, gardens, meeting rooms and venues. Please note the Convent’s official opening hours are 7.30am–9.30pm daily. The studio has 24/7 access.
Sitting alongside the Yarra Capital Trail, the Convent is also 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. With over 100 studios onsite, the Convent is home to some of Melbourne’s finest creatives, organisations and wellbeing practitioners, making this the ultimate place for collaboration and community engagement.
