Since it was established in late 2008 Renew Newcastle has been the inspiration for empty space revitalisation schemes across the country, like Renew Adelaide and our first pilot project in Melbourne, Docklands Spaces. The challenges and successes that these projects have faced led to the establishment of Renew Australia because we learnt that replicating these ideas aren’t always easy and if you’re just starting out you need some help along the way.
In 2013, Renew Australia launched our affiliate project scheme. This allows local Renew-style projects to get help with things like insurance, advice and other assistance and it allows us to gradually build and support a network of local projects. If you are interested in becoming a Renew Australia affiliate don’t hesitate to contact us.
In the meantime check out some of the great projects taking place around Australia such as the Renew Sydney project in Leichhardt, Revolution Marrickville, Jack’s Reloaded and our latest project with The District Docklands and Development Victoria, the Docklands Art Collective. Stay tuned for more updates from our network of local affiliates via our website or Facebook page.
