    About Wollongong Creative Spaces – Lower Town Hall Studios

    Local creative practitioners are invited to submit Expressions of Interest for six available studios in the Wollongong Creative Spaces - Lower Town Hall Studios. The studios are located in the heart of the Arts Precinct, in the basement of Wollongong Town Hall, corner of Kembla Street and Crown Street. The Lower Town Hall Studio program exists side by side with Wollongong City Council’s Creative Spaces strategy to utilise empty buildings and shop fronts and to encourage and support partnership between local business and local artists. Each studio artist is encouraged and supported to participate in scheduled open studio tours, Community Cultural Development workshops, ‘Creative Dialogues’ artist talks and artist markets in the Arts Precinct.

    About the available studio

    The available studios are approximately 3m x 4m with private lockable entrance, carpet, security windows, fluorescent lighting, and access to power. Each studio has shared use of the Lower Town Hall Studios common area, kitchenette, access to water, and shared toilet facilities. The studio contribution is currently $10 per week to cover utilities and is available on a rolling Licence Agreement. 14 days’ notice to vacate is applicable to both parties. The studios are currently undergoing refurbishment including new paint and carpet.
