The Nest is a cultural incubator for artists, makers and innovators! We believe it is of major cultural importance to provide sacred space for artists, so we designed our 2000sqm Cultural Playground to nurture expression, growth and connection.
With a proud holistic philosophy, the Nest is run by Artists for Artists. Keeping the space open plan is part of the ethos encouraging collaboration within our community. Currently we house 50+ creatives and offer stunning multi-use communal and event spaces.
The Nest is more like a bespoke artists retreat than a generic creative space. Around every corner you’ll find carefully curated styling from Missy and Daniel’s private collection of furniture, vintage wares and commissioned artworks. Missy’s botanical obsession is reflected throughout the warm sun-drenched areas of the nest making this a sanctuary for the city.
Our workshop spaces for hire include ‘The Greenhouse Concepts Store’, a spacious area drenched in natural light and indoor plants as well as ‘The Cloud Room’, a dream-state room with cloud covered walls, vintage lounges and a platformed stage. Both areas are close to mural painted walls
Most of the Nest spaces are flexible and can be catered to your needs. The Future Artefacts Gallery space and the The Cave space can also be catered to your specific needs. Please see details on each space below;
