Calling all creative practitioners – some exciting opportunities are afoot! The soon-to-be realised Collingwood Arts Precinct, made up of the former buildings of the Collingwood Technical school and TAFE, is now seeking expressions of interest for key tenants. If you’re a small-to-medium-sized creative organisation who would like to join the new and dynamic cultural hub, navigate over to the CAP website to access detailed information on the site and spaces available and the timeline for applications. Contemporary Arts Precincts (the non-profit organisation looking after the CAP project) will also be running several information sessions for interested parties throughout the months of December, January and February (registrations required). Make sure you get your proposals in on-time: submissions close 5pm, Wednesday 28 February 2018.
