Petersham Creative EOI

Inner West Council is committed to creative spaces and is giving creatives more access to our venues.

To support this initiative, we are establishing Petersham Creative, a hub for organisations wishing to use Petersham Town Hall for the administration of creative activities.

Council is providing this affordable space for arts, cultural and creative sector organisations to collectively establish and drive a creative hub in the Petersham Town Hall.

Petersham Creative has been developed to support the establishment of a vibrant shared creative hub that enables the arts, cultural, creative, and cultural sectors to further their cultural production and new collaborations, strengthening their capacity to contribute to the Inner West's rich cultural and creative life.

The spaces

The town hall offers 5 small office spaces, in addition to a communal kitchenette, and break-out area on the first floor. The spaces are further detailed in the attached information pack:

The spaces are offered "as is" and all are currently fitted out with a desk, chair and under-bench storage credenza. All the doors are fitted with locks, however 3 of the spaces are heritage cubicle-type spaces.

There are no internet services to be provided by Council for these spaces.

Licence and fee

The spaces will be offered as a licence, for a two-year term. The fee will be negotiated with reference to Council's Land and Property Policy (PDF 561.3KB), and in particular to Section 14 - Accommodation Grants.

The grant will be detailed in the licence and the grant will specify the benefits to be provided to the community to ensure that the licensee's occupation/use of the premises continues to be in the public interest during the term of the licence.
