Making affordable space for Sydney Artists since 2005


Our Artist Pass scheme is a loyalty program which affords artists heavily subsidised hire of our spaces, free skills development training programs, priority access to our residencies, discounted tickets to The Flying Nun performance program and opportunities to promote your work through our website for an annual subscription for $20 (individual) and $100 (organisation).

The Flying Nun

Celebrating the fringe, alternative and local contemporary counter-culture, come and be the first audience to witness new performance work fresh out of the rehearsal room and by doing so, support Independent Artists to propel their work on to stages across Sydney.

The ProtoSHOP by Brand X is a unique showcase of first-run curiosities made by local artists as "experiments" to test market appeal. Brand X's unique Gift Shop, where you have the opportunity to find the perfect present for those who love to be original.
