Affordable living and work spaces

In 2013 the City of Sydney opened its first creative live/work subsidised studio program. We offered people working in a creative field the opportunity to take up a 12-month apartment lease in the William Street Creative Hub.

Six 1-bedroom apartments have since provided working studios and residential accommodation for a new group of artists each year. The current group of artists include:

Waterloo creative live/work space

Following the success of the William Street program, a new creative live/work space in Waterloo was added to the program in 2016.

Located within the Waterloo Library grounds, this self-contained apartment is currently home to dancers Amy Zhang and Jackson Garcia, along with curator Tian Zhang and musician Adam Rothwell.


We are not currently taking applications for our live/work subsidised studios. But to find out when opportunities become available in any of our creative spaces programs, subscribe below.
