The studio space is suitable for small scale arts and crafts; it is not suitable for music.

The theatre makers are from Bethlehem, one of Marrickville's Sister Cities.
Bernadette Burke – visual/community artist
November – December

Bernadette would like to become a mentor to other artists with a disability through a successful, strong art practice using opportunities to share her skills and expertise with as many people as possible. She also proposes to use her skills as an audio engineer to run a masterclass in basic audio for the Marrickville Community.
Australia Street Art Camp
Marrickville Council recognises that a major challenge facing metropolitan artists is the lack of affordable studio space in the inner city and inner west.
To support the growth of the creative industries and to financially assist artists, Marrickville Council, with assistance from Arts NSW and the Community Building Partnership Program has recently converted part of the community facility at 24 Australia Street, Camperdown into two functional artist studios.
The Australia Street Art Camp will offer one emerging and one mid-career/established artist each a studio workshop and storage space for a 24 month period. It is intended the established artist will act as a mentor to the emerging artist.
