The Nest Creative Space

Our 50+ creatives are opening up their studios with performances, live art, music, installation art and collective works for sale.

The Nest is a cultural incubator for local artists and a proud wholistic and innovative community for it’s Collective Creatives. Its purpose is to motivate and inspire, but also to nurture a deep sense of belonging, allowing growth and reflective space for the artists’ personal practice.

Motivated by the lack of space for their own large-scale creative productions, The Nest was born and designed to be a dynamic, shape shifting, multi-use melting pot. It houses artisan studios, performance art and music shows, immersive dining experiences such as Nights at The Nest, and much more. Missy and Dan who co conceived the Nest, believe it’s of cultural importance to keep artists in communities, to create space for expression and connection, and this is really felt throughout the space.

The artist precinct boasts street level gallery, communal workshop, Cloud Room, as well as the very special Nancy’s Greenhouse inspired by Missy’s late grandmother. The couple have personally renovated it through much blood, sweat and tears, and it’s now the proud home of over 50 permanent creatives, with a high rotation of events, concept installations, exhibitions, open days and interactive dining experiences.
