Geelong’s CBD has welcomed a new influx of creatives with the launch of Renew Geelong’s Concept Space.
Based at Morrabool Street Market Square Shopping Centre, the Renew Geelong Concept Space currently hosts creative businesses including The Geelong Illustrators Workshop and Studio; Waja Creations, creators of concrete and timber pieces and planters; and moccasin makers, Fair Dinkum Moccies.
Renew Geelong, delivered by Renew Australia, is an urban renewal scheme that aims to fill empty buildings and spaces to bring new life to under-utilized and under-appreciated precincts, while simultaneously providing emerging creatives, artists and performers with a forum for showcasing their talent.
A not-for-profit social enterprise, Renew Geelong is funded by the City of Greater Geelong and the Victorian Government to match spaces to projects and ensure that potential tenants complement surrounding businesses.
Owners of vacant commercial properties, agents and creatives are encouraged to contact Renew Geelong if they are interested in becoming involved Geelong@renewaustralia.org
