Brunswick Mechanics Institute is dedicated to making space for artists to create and develop new work. In the coming months we’ll open applications for residencies across our Theatre, Studio 1 and Studio 2 spaces. If you’re a professional artist at any stage of your career creating contemporary work, then Mechanics is a low cost, well equipped rehearsal and development space.

You can express your interest in using the venue at any time using the enquiry form below, or sign up to our mailing list to be the first to hear about residency program callouts.
