Benefits for artists and creative enterprises

Access to a space to work from, to sell work, to rehearse or to create is of immense value to creative projects that typically begin without much money.

Renew Newcastle has opened nearly 40 new creative projects and initiatives in the Newcastle CBD since the project commenced in late 2008 and in most cases these would simply never have got off the ground if Renew Newcastle hadn't created the opportunity.

In virtually every case Renew Newcastle has given an artist, a small creative business, or a creative community the opportunity to take a major step forward in what they are doing. They are often realising a long held dream to open a shop, start a gallery, set up a studio or take their work to the next level.
