Collins Street Studios EOI Round 3 is now open – Launching March 2024!

Desk based creative practitioners with teams of 1-2 are invited to rent office space at Collins Street Studios. 

Don't miss this opportunity to make your mark in a central city location, at below market rates!

In partnership with the Victorian Government, the City of Melbourne's Creative Spaces program is launching its first creative hub in the heart of the city, offering more affordable and adaptive spaces to support the creative sector.  

Located at 271 Collins Street, the new Collins Street Studios hub will transform a vacant open plan office into a diverse collection of spaces for creative businesses, organisations and practitioners.  

This is a rare opportunity to co-locate your practice within a creative hub environment that can host over 100 creative workers, provide a platform for collaboration, the sharing of ideas, resources and skills and help boost creative sector careers and practices.  

Please note, this space will not suit public facing organisations such as galleries, or artists that have practices that require wet work or hard arts practices.  

There are multiple studios available at below market rates for creatives whose work is suited to an office environment.
