Renew Australia is a national social enterprise designed to catalyse community renewal, economic development, the arts and creative industries across Australia.

We work with local communities to catalyse creative industries and improve main streets and central business districts by leveraging underutilised spaces and transforming them into creative hubs.

projects and participants around Australia

Renewing spaces

We work with communities and property owners to take otherwise empty shops, offices, commercial and public buildings and make them available to incubate short term use by artists, creative projects and community initiatives.

Being part of the Renew Wollongong program has been an extremely rewarding journey. I have had a very positive experience with the Renew team and the real estate agent involved. They have supported me every step of the way, providing advice assistance and encouragement at every stage. With belonging being a major influence on my art it has been rewarding for me to feel welcomed and supported from the start.
