Last Wednesday night I met up with some friends to attend the Cloth Fabric store opening in Darlinghurst. It was fun, of course, to catch up with friends and see Julie's fabrics and gorgeous store. What I really enjoyed were the speeches (bizarre, right?).
City of Sydney is aiming to develop cultural precincts by activating underutilised space on Oxford St and William St by offering creative individuals and organisations affordable rental across sixteen City-owned properties, including retail and office spaces. The City of Sydney has also dedicated six one-bedroom apartments on William Street
as artist live/work spaces, offering affordable rental
for artists to both live and work in their own space, with more to come on Oxford St. How great!
Sydney has also now been included in the Creative Spaces website, designed to help artists and creative enterprises find a
suitable space to develop, exhibit or perform their work. It is a free
classifieds-style website offering a broad spectrum of spaces for hire
ranging from established spaces such as theatres, rehearsal rooms and
galleries to studios and short-term space. The City of Sydney will be listing its own creative spaces on this website too.
Sydney 2030 website for more information.
