Brunswick Mechanics Institute is dedicated to making space for artists to create and develop new work. In Dec 2017 we opened up applications for two inaugural creative development programs running throughout 2018. Applications have now closed for 2018 and we will launch a callout for 2019 projects later in the year.

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.  Spaces can be booked from as little as $20 per hour.

You can send us an enquiry about the availability of the venue using the form below, or sign up to our mailing list to be the first to hear about residency program callouts for 2019.
