Collingwood Arts Precinct: Business Model
Client: Creative Victoria
Location: Collingwood, Melbourne
Since June 2014, Hello City has been working with Creative Victoria in the development of the Business Model for an exciting new arts precinct proposed for a former TAFE site in the heart of bustling Collingwood.
Our work has involved:
- assessment of demand through in-depth engagement with potential tenant organisations
- development of a base business model as a tool for the newly appointed Board of a brand new organisation set up to manage the project
- development of outline strategies to guide the new Board in the selection and involvement of tenants, stakeholders and the broader community
- articulating options for incorporating affordable housing for artists
The new organisation – Contemporary Arts Precincts Ltd – now has a Chair, Board members and a CEO and is well on the way to realising this groundbreaking project.
