Schoolhouse Studios

28 Victoria St, Coburg (Old Coles) https://www.schoolhousestudios.com.au/

We thoughtfully convert disused buildings into ever-evolving places for creative expression and connection for artists, independent creative businesses, activists, social enterprises, and much more. Why? Because we believe that creative expression and community are the beating heart of our humanity and should be available to everyone.We place relationships first. We invite the local community into our process so we’re always adapting to what our community wants and needs.

Schoolhouse Studios is so much more than the spaces it inhabits. It’s a community, a sanctuary, a resource, an advocate, a stage, a loudspeaker, a living and ever-evolving beast that loves and challenges in equal measure. A safe space to get things wrong, right, and everything between. We don’t see those magic moments of growth and collaboration when artists collide as happy accidents. To us they’re a hard target. They’re built into our model because we know these moments are the most valuable thing we offer our community.
