A new horizon

Our foray into new suburbs has brought us a space in Beaumont Street, Hamilton known now as Clocktower Studios. We are excited that the property owners, our funding partners Newcastle City Council, have approached us to temporarily fill the first floor of this building while their longer term plans for the space become reality.

The Clocktower Studios now houses a group of photographers and videographers and includes a studio space, a post production room, and a darkroom for five new Renewers; Edwina Richards, Kylie Foley, Nat Testorelli, Simone Darcy and Kerry Staite.

The length of our stay in the Clocktower building is unknown, but as with all of our spaces is only temporary, sometimes as small as 30 days. As we’ve seen in the mall, the presence of activity in empty spaces adds to the process of change in our neighbourhoods and brings social and economic value to the community. We would love to spread these benefits into new communities around Newcastle.
