    Bighouse Arts was founded in late 2016 by seven friends who share a love of music, art, community and the people who make their creativity their practice.  Members of the Bighouse Arts collective come from Melbourne bands Perch Creek and Masco Sound System, along with a social work academic from CSU and an events planner from UNSW. Our vision is to facilitate a beautiful space where people can come and work on their creative/professional projects in a constructive and friendly environment.

    We have art and design studios, rehearsal spaces, communal co working sapces, events spaces, workshop sapces and down the line plan to open a live music venue, a bar and a cafe.

    Bighouse Arts offers permanent or temporary studio rental spaces as well as cheap day rentals, onsite parking, 24hr access, wifi, kitchen facilites.

    Please note * we will be renovating/working on the spaces around the studios, so there will be noise from time to time.
