    Second Story Studios is a creative and conscious community hub in the heart of Collingwood, ideally located on the corner of Johnston & Hoddle.

    The space has been in operation for over 6 years and has seen a wide variety of creative professionals through its doors over the years.


    The Woom Room is our specifically tailored room for intimate events and ritual based workshops. Designed to feel comforting, like an actual womb, it has a creative energy that encourages deep connection to one’s divine feminine intuition.

    This room is often used for theatre performances and can easily be blacked out. We maintain an exclusivity policy to what bookings we will accept for this room to maintain a sacred form of energy and feeling in the space, something we hope both facilitators and attendees feel and respect during their time in the venue.

    We can provide sound and lighting equipment, otherwise this space is the perfect blank canvas for whatever creative project you are working on.
