Creative City Sydney

Affordable living and work spaces

In 2013, the City of Sydney opened its first creative live/work residency program when we offered people working in a creative field an opportunity to take up a 12-month affordable apartment lease on William Street.

In 2014, 6 talented artists were announced as our very first residents at the William Street creative live/work apartments. The second group commenced in mid-2015 on 12-month leases and our third group of artists commenced in June this year.

Current tenants in the William Street creative live/work spaces:

Waterloo creative live/work space

Following the success of the William Street program, we recently completed an application process for a new creative live/work space in Waterloo. 

Located within the Waterloo Library grounds, this self-contained apartment will be used as a working studio and residential accommodation for artists or creative workers who will collaborate with the library.
