Room to Create Studio at Collingwood Yards Artists

About Yarra's Room to Create Studios at Collingwood Yards

In 2020 the Room to Create Program opened a studio at Collingwood Yards with support from the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation.

The studio offers space to artists at a discounted rate of commercial rent within the Collingwood Yards precinct, a new, permanent and affordable home for artists and independent arts organisations in Yarra. 

The Room to Create Program is supported through a charitable fund established by the City of Yarra and the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation, a fund which seeks to raise money for creative infrastructure, in perpetuity.
