    Second Story Studios is a creative and conscious community hub in the heart of Collingwood, conveniently located on the corner of Johnston & Hoddle Streets. Keep an eye out for the rainbow building!

    The space has been in operation for over 5 years and has seen a wide variety of creative professionals through its doors over the years.

    Second Story Studios frequently hosts a wide range of events, workshops, and artists in our space, and we also love collaborating outside of our rainbow home!
