About the program

Our creative live and work program provides affordable studios for artists in the inner city.

The City of Sydney has long recognised the challenges facing artists seeking affordable space to live and work locally. Since 2013, we’ve offered subsidised residential leases in our properties for artists to live and work from the same premises.

Our aim is to foster opportunities for cultural, creative and commercial exchange that may otherwise not be possible in the inner city. This opportunity allows artists and creatives 18 months to focus on their practice in a focused and relaxed environment.
