The Mill has occupied its Angas Street location since 2013. In that time, we've built a strong community and a reputation for offering valuable opportunities to assist artists along their individual creative pathways. The Mill also offers an Exhibition Space with a regular program of interdisciplinary exhibitions, artist talks and workshops, and The Breakout - our performing arts, rehearsal and events venue.
The Mill's Artist Studios provide opportunities for artists and makers of any discipline to operate an affordable, well-equipped workshop in a professional and arts-compatible environment. Current and past uses include woodworking, illustration, shoemaking, painting, photography, graphic design, sculpture, ceramics and more.
Expect: Your own designated open studio space (approx 15m2), 24hr studio access, wifi and access to shared spaces (kitchen, gallery). Leases start from 3 months.
Creative Industry Offices
The Mill's Creative Industry Offices provide space for enterprises to operate a private, affordable office in a professional and arts-compatible environment. Spaces range in size from single-person offices to larger co-working studios. Current and past uses include fashion design, publishing, graphic design, a tattoo studio and more.
Expect: 24hr access to your private, lockable office, wifi and access to shared spaces (kitchen, gallery).
The Mill's Exhibition Space presents four, 12-week 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 cross-medium and inhabited nature of The Mill means that a varied audience uses the space and visits exhibitions.
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.
