The Abbotsford Convent Foundation (ACF) is inviting applications for a tenancy within ‘WellBeing at the Convent'.
Applications are sought from qualified, experienced and community-minded body work practitioners to complement the existing therapies available at the Convent.
Just four kilometres from the CBD, the Convent – with its historic buildings and lush surrounds – has become an inner-city sanctuary for arts and creative practitioners and organisations seeking a peaceful, yet vibrant working environment.
We currently have a studio available located in the western corridor of the Convent building. The studio is 10 square metres overlooking a tree-lined courtyard. The old Nun’s dormitories have a cathedral height ceiling window affording plenty of natural light.
The tenancy offers access to shared kitchenette facilities and waiting room, bathrooms and showers, as well as discounted car parking. Sitting alongside the Yarra Capital Trail, the Convent is also easily accessible on bike or via public transport. Rooms are self-contained, lockable and have hydronic heating.
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 131 studios onsite, the Convent is home to some of Melbourne’s finest artists, creatives, organisations and wellbeing practitioners, making this the ultimate place for collaboration and community engagement.
Please select and complete the application form below before the application closing date 16 June 2019.
