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 has given our business a unique opportunity to test the Geelong market and operate from a beautiful property in doing so. Dealing with the Renew team has been a really positive experience and we are looking forward to an ongoing relationship with the program.

We're SO delighted to announce our latest project… Renew Docklands, in partnership with the City of Melbourne and the Victorian State Government.

The Renew Docklands initiative will assist in the rejuvenation of the area - one that has experienced significant commercial vacancy. Working closely with the City, the local community, property owners and representatives, Renew seeks to transform empty shopfronts into creative spaces, bespoke displays and fledgling retail spaces. ✨

Stay tuned to find out more about what we have in store for Docklands.

If you'd like to beat the crowd and apply today, our expression of interest is now OPEN. You can submit your application online form.jotform.com/212341677613858
