Schoolhouse Studios Collingwood

Type of space: Multi-use Space, Photography Studio, Pop-up Space, Rehearsal Space, Performance venue, Visual Art Studio, Warehouse, Music Performance Venue, Retail Space

    We have studios available in our ambitiously converted warehouse in Collingwood. They're diverse (like our people) and practical spaces in one of Melbourne's most dynamic creative precincts, and perfect for artists, creative businesses, activists, and social organisations looking for a greater community to challenge and support them.

    We're a not-for-profit organisation whose mission is to foster the arts in a radically supportive and welcoming way, and we play as hard as we work. If you're interested then please get in touch, we'd love to hear from you!

    We also host killer events, so if you're looking for a space that's practical and accessible, but never boring, for a launch party, dinner, fundraiser, gig/performance or exhibition, you can use the contact form to ask us about that too.



    Pricing Terms

    From $50/week

    Lease Conditions

    We're moving sites soon*, so in the meantime, we're offering affordable studios at our current site in Collingwood. We're looking for artists, creative businesses, activists and social orgs/groups who are looking for a short-ish term space that's reasonably priced and can be negotiated based on use, current Covid 19 restrictions, etc. And when the time comes, all Collingwood Schoolhouse residents be offered a space at our killer new site.

    *We'll be moving sometime in the first half of 2021. The new site is in Moreland and we'll release details as they're confirmed. What we CAN say is that the new site is very (VERY) cool. It's like nothing Melbourne's seen before and will be full of all things Schoolhouse: Inclusivity, experimentation, vision, growth, hard work, gigs, parties, art shows and more!

    Parking Notes
