Renewal continues

Renewal continues Image

Renew Australia’s Docklands Spaces project has been validated by the extension of the project through to mid-next year.

The success of the program was celebrated last month with the launch of a walking tour, which guides visitors to each of the creative projects that have taken up residence in Docklands over the past year.

Docklands Spaces gives creative enterprises access to unleased spaces rent-free on short-term leases.

The program, which is a collaboration between Places Victoria, the City of Melbourne and Renew Australia, began in March this year with the aim of activating Waterfront City Piazza.

Since then it has branched out into Harbour Town, with 12 different enterprises now taking part in the program.  

These include 3D printing retailer Studio Batch, exhibition and studio space D11 @ Docklands, art space The Food Court and social enterprise The Revolution Project.

Next year the initiative will extend even further across Docklands.

“With the program extended we’d love to see more developers get involved in the program by donating some of their empty tenancies for use by new, dynamic businesses,” Renew Australia founder Marcus Westbury said.

“The Docklands Spaces project is a people generator that helps achieve our vision for a popular destination, with a mix of used and engaging places in a world-class waterfront setting.”

A map of the Docklands Spaces walking tour can be found at any of the spaces or can be downloaded from http://www.docklandsspaces.org
