Over the past four years the former Collingwood Technical College has been undergoing a dramatic transformation into a permanent, affordable and dynamic home for artists and the creative community in Melbourne’s inner north. With the site already welcoming the first influx of tenants and set to open to the public in stages throughout 2020, we are excited to reveal its new identity as Collingwood Yards.
“The ‘Collingwood Arts Precinct’ is a literal description that has been applied not only to Collingwood Yards, but to the adjoining Circus Oz site and, at times, some of the creative community around it,” says Marcus Westbury, CEO of Contemporary Arts Precincts Ltd, the organisation that has managed and developed the Collingwood Yards site since the Victorian Government, through Creative Victoria, designated the site as a creative hub and community asset, transferring ownership to Contemporary Arts Precincts in March 2018.
