Renew Projects: Renew Geelong

Employing the successful model pioneered in Newcastle, Renew Geelong connects owners of vacant properties with makers, creators, artists, community groups and local enterprises to reinvigorate empty spaces in central Geelong – Rent free!

A not-for-profit social enterprise, Renew Geelong is funded by the City of Greater Geelong and Creative Victoria to match spaces to projects and ensure that potential tenants compliment surrounding businesses.

The Renew Geelong Concept Space, based at 105-107 Morrabool Street, Market Square Shopping Centre, currently plays host to three creative businesses including The Geelong Illustrators Workshop and Studio, Waja Creations, and Fair Dinkum Moccies. Slip next door to 109 Moorabool Street for The Reimaginarium, and around the corner at 105 Lt Malop Street for Ruck Agency.

The Belcher Arcade at 171-181 Moorabool Street, offered to Renew Creatives free of charge by Up Property, is also set for a shake up with three creative projects confirmed for the Arcade with more to be announced. The Indirect Object, Legio-Centurion Films, and Hearth Tales are set up showcasing their creativity.
