Renew Leichhardt is an initiative of Leichhardt Council and affiliate member of Renew Australia. Renew Leichhardt is seeking Expressions of Interest from artists, designers, photographers, printmakers, architects, milliners, jewellers, publishers, animators and all creative enterprises in between to revitalise empty spaces in the  Leichhardt Multiplicity.

Are you a creative enterprise and unique ventures looking for new opportunities? Are you ready to try your hand at retail / get out of the home office and work in a dynamic environment with likeminded enterprises? Renew Leichhardt may have an opportunity for you! We are looking for new creative and community projects to present to property owners and real estate agents.

The Expression of Interest seeks to attract creative entrepreneurs, makers and social entrepreneurs able to open at least 6 days per week, have at least 2 people in the enterprise/project to do so and are established in their ideas, projects and activation methods.

We are looking for creative shops, galleries, studios, or collaborative workspace to present to owners in the Leichhardt Multiplicity.

Selected participants will be given temporary rent-free access to an assortment of retail and office spaces, made available thanks to the support of the Leichhardt Municipal Council, and various private property owners.

You could be part of a growing creative movement to promote local economic, cultural and community development, the arts and creative industries across Australia

The “Renew” model

You get 30 days rent free – then, if the space hasn’t leased, you get another 30 days, and so on. A great way to test the market and try new things!
