Docklands’ new hub for knowledge

04 Aug 2016

Docklands’ new hub for knowledge Image

A vibrant hub is emerging at the western end of Victoria Harbour, with the recently-opened Knowledge Market at the centre of the buzz.

Knowledge Market, at the base of the Concavo building, is home to a unique combination of education providers, start-ups and creative industries, offering a platform for the exchange of skills and knowledge.

The new collaborative space was officially launched last month and it’s a place where you can learn almost anything – from digital storytelling and meditation, to team building and hula hooping.

Amongst other offerings, the current program features a workshop on social media tool SnapChat, a session on the basics of Twitter and an empathy lab.

Knowledge Market is a Lend Lease initiative and was set up by The Space Agency, an “activation agency” which specialises in transforming spaces into places.

Located adjacent to Library at the Dock and with new neighbours moving in on either side there’s a real sense of activity and vibrancy around the new addition to Docklands.

Formerly located underneath ANZ, Kelly Cube, which offers ready-to-cook meal kits, has moved next door to Knowledge Market, while Italian paninoteca Saluministi is now serving up tasty meals and coffee on the other side.

Lend Lease’s Victoria Harbour project director Tim Campbell said Knowledge Market held a world of promise for the many career-focused professionals who live and work in the area.

“We are extremely proud to open the doors to Knowledge Market today and provide our residents, workers and the broader Melbourne community with a collaborative hub for sharing ideas,” Mr Campbell said.

“We pride ourselves on creating great places – not just buildings – so it means a lot to us that Victoria Harbour is now home to Melbourne’s collaborative economy.”

“Through peer-to-peer learning, workshops and events, we’re providing an engine room for cross-industry collaboration, idea sharing and connectivity – three key ingredients for innovation,” Mr Campbell said.

The Space Agency director Hugo Lamb said Knowledge Market was the first of its kind in terms of a collaborative learning hub.

“The idea of a collaborative space, where entrepreneurs, business owners and savvy individuals can support one another isn’t new, with Silicon Valley generally considered to be the progenitor of the worldwide trend,” Mr Lamb said. “But Victoria Harbour will take it to the next level.”

Knowledge Market is open seven days a week and local residents, workers and visitors are welcome to sign up to workshops online or host their own group events.
