Creative spaces and studios

Coal Loader Artist Studio

North Sydney Council aims to support artists to explore and develop their art practice by providing artists with a studio space at the Coal Loader Centre for Sustainability, Waverton. Council encourages the chosen studio artist to share their creative insights with the community, raising awareness of cultural expression through sustainable means. Council will provide a studio space at the Coal Loader Centre for Sustainability for 12 month period. The artist is not required to pay a rental fee but instead will be required to be available to talk to the public one day per month and design and deliver four workshops to the community at no charge. The artist is required to provide the materials and workshop equipment, as relevant.

About the Studio Space

The Coal Loader Artist Studio Space is an out-building located on the grounds of the Coal Loader Centre for Sustainability at Balls Head, Waverton in Sydney. While the studio space is undercover it is part of a row of out-buildings that were formerly workshops and therefore retains is rustic industrial architecture and charm. Applicants should consider the suitability of the space to their medium and working methods before applying. The studio space is lockable (padlock and gate) and has power points. Limited public WiFi is available, although this can be unstable. There is no ‘wash up’ space.

Applications for the Coal Loader Artist Studio open in April each year.
