    Join the Dots is a thriving creative space. We began in 2012 with a strong mission to support creative culture in sydney (the making kind more than the cafe kind). The space is run by a community of volunteers, we operate as a not-for-profit with the intentions of providing affordable spaces for practitioners to develop their work, experiment, collaborate and exhibit.

    The space includes 12 studios of different sizes, a communal hang space that’s great for events and workshops, a street front gallery/rehearsal space, fully equipped woodworking workshop, a kitchen (with small espresso machine), two bathrooms and a sunny stoop for knock off bevvys. 

    We have a diverse community of people who use the space including painters, designers, ceramicists, photographers, collage artists, illustrators, furniture makers, writers, performers, radio producers, musicians, printmakers, film makers, installations artists and other mixed media.   

    There is also a wider community of people who use the gallery, rehearsal and event spaces for workshops, events and theatre rehearsals.   

    We have a number of studio spaces available, see prices below.

    Rent includes access to event space, gallery/rehearsal space and woodworking workshop (we will give you a powertool induction). Rent also includes all bills, WIFI, and a fortnightly cleaner of communal spaces.   

    24/7 access

    If you’d like to come check out the space we’d love to hear from you! Please shoot us an email at  

    Also contact us if you’re interested in casual hire for events like workshops, rehearsals, film screenings, poetry readings, talks or other creative gigs.
