Our venue also houses an Exhibition Space with a regular program of exhibitions, residencies, artist talks and workshops, and The Breakout - our performing arts, rehearsal and live events venue.
The Mill's Artist Studios provide opportunities for visual artists and makers of any discipline to operate an affordable studio in a professional and arts-compatible environment. Current and past uses include sculpture, ceramics, woodworking, illustration, fashion, painting, photography and more.

Creative Industry Spaces
The Mill's Creative Industry Spaces provide room for enterprises to operate a private, affordable workspace in a professional and arts-compatible environment. Spaces range in size from single-person offices to larger co-working studios and retail spaces. Current and past uses include production, fashion design, publishing, graphic design, game development, pop-up retail, a tattoo studio and more.

The Mill's Exhibition Space presents four residencies per year, alongside short feature exhibitions.
Each resident artist commits time to developing their practice through discussions, forums, workshops, research and artist talks - both with the artistic community and the general public.

The Mill is excited to launch The Breakout. Conceived as a rehearsal and development space for small, performance-based companies, the 14m x 7m venue has a sprung floor, acoustic treatment, air-conditioning, sound and lighting infrastructure.
The flexible space is available for hire in 1-hour to 1-month blocks, and is suitable for almost any rehearsal / development. It also doubles as an intimate performance venue for audiences of up-to 50 pax and event space.
The Mill's Exhibition Space and The Breakout are available for event hire. They are unique locations and can be utilised for corporate events, product launches and private functions, as well as team building, training and professional development days.
The Exhibition Space features a constantly evolving backdrop of visual art. Our small bar licence allows us to cater for groups large and small, and we can also assist with catering.
