Collingwood Arts Precinct
The project involved a series of feasibility studies and stakeholder/tenant consultation focusing on these adjoining buildings and the formation of the Collingwood Arts Precinct. Subsequently, Breathe designed, documented and delivered early works and Stage One construction works. Collingwood Arts Precinct has been about making something from nothing. To interview arts organisations in need of accommodation. To prepare a master plan to find possibilities & opportunities to house them on the derelict TAFE site. To work up a business case to be put to the Arts Minister to seek funding. To identify opportunities for ground plane activation to create pop-up occupancy for immediate site activation with only 25% of required funds allocated to the project. To work with the new board to re-imagine the future of the site.
