A unique opportunity exists to join Australia’s largest creative community. Just four kilometres 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 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. 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 creatives, organisations and wellbeing practitioners, making this the ultimate place for collaboration and community engagement.
