A new creative and workshop space giving artisans, professionals and community groups a flexible and affordable venue has opened in Batemans Bay.
Occupying the warehouse adjoining the South Tribe co working space in Kylie Crescent, CULTIVATE space is part of the recent push by artists and creatives into Batemans Bay’s industrial estate.
CULTIVATE co-founder and owner of REplay video, Rima Edwards, said being in the industrial estate gave CULTIVATE both a creative and competitive edge.
“To a large degree, being in an industrial estate gives us a licence to be what we want to be. First and foremost, we can focus on what happens in the space – people who want to experiment and take creative risks can do so. The rent is lower here as well, which means we can let the space at an affordable rate.”
“It’s ideal for art exhibitions, workshop and rehearsal space, performance space, film shoots, long table events, and as a place to test bold ideas” said Rima.
Co-founder and owner of the FIX coffee, Mathew Hatcher, said “the space offered a versatile multi-use footprint. CULTIVATE has everything anyone could need ready to go – bathrooms, kitchen, fast internet, tables, chairs, staging, large walls for hanging art, a PA and of course a first-rate pop-up coffee cart. The foundations are there to do just about anything.”
Mr Hatcher said the adaptable warehouse also has high ceilings, a massive roller door, multiple secure storage areas, and disabled access in all ground floor areas.
CULTIVATE would like to hear from any-one with an idea or concept to use the space.
CULTIVATE is at 2/10 Kylie Crescent Batemans Bay and is available for hire 7 days a week.
