    about the residency: 

    pvi collective co-lab space offers artists the opportunity to stop working at the kitchen table, and take on a stable, affordable desk amongst like-minded peers. we’ve found this model encourages the separation of home and work, and frequently impacts positively on the artists’ career via the professional environment and strengthen networks.

    as we’re a not-for-profit arts organisation, the remit of the space is to be an affordable and community-building space for the arts community, rather than just a space-to-hire. 

    this space would suit artists or arts workers who are desk-based, and are looking for a co-working space. individuals are allocated a dedicated desk in the co-lab space in a supportive environment.

    about the co-lab space:

    this is a shared studio with four desks in a contemporary, professional building with large windows and natural light. there is air conditioning, and access to amenities, desk and drawers, shared kitchen and bathrooms. it is close to public transport, northbridge and mount lawley.

    the co-lab space is open to artists and arts workers across all disciplines. we welcome a mix of practices and value the opportunities this mix of people generates. we’re also very keen on talented, considerate folk with the occasional joke up their sleeves.
