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.

Renew Geelong and Renew Australia have gone above and beyond assisting us with our space. Helpful tips for gaining interest with our front window, getting foot traffic and all the general support they offer. Not to mention they are super nice to work with!

We love how Explore Port Phillip is highlighting the amazing Renew Fitzroy Street participants in St Kilda. #renewaustralia #renewfitzroystreetLast week we introduced you to Greg from FARM GOAT. This week it’s Tom Cerdan’s turn as we celebrate the Renew Fitzroy Street creators and makers!

Hailing from Marseille in the South of France, Tom is a self-taught artist, specialising in painting large murals and canvases.

Just one look at his work at Shop 4/63 Fitzroy Street - St Kilda and you’ll immediately be transported to an artistic universe which is influenced by dreams, ancient cultures and spirituality.

Formerly a world traveller, Tom has been based in St Kilda for the past two years – lucky us!

“The opportunity to showcase my work on the main street of a shopping strip is fantastic. I’ve had such great interactions with people who come into the space I share with MrMacrame, Rus Kitchin and Flo & Co., and I’ve really enjoyed getting to know the local community and talk about my art.”

Head on down to Fitzroy Street and check out Tom's work for yourself!
