Thanks to Nathan O’Hehir of Pumphouse Productions, whose project is located within the Hunter Studios building (152-160 Hunter St), for producing this neat time-lapse video of the Spring City Walk tour groups visiting their studio space on Thursday 1 October. Keep your eyes peeled for the creepy clown!
Project applications now open – retail space with The Emporium
33 Degrees South Soap Factory located within The Emporium
Renew Newcastle is calling for proposals to activate a space located within our flagship retail space The Emporium.
The Emporium, located on the ground floor of the former David Jones department store, is a fine arcade of boutiques and counter spaces filled with handmade product by local makers.
If you are a maker of products related to clothing, bags, shoes, accessories, lingerie, jewellery, beauty, homewares and stationery this is a great opportunity for you test your merchandise in a retail environment.
You must be in a position to operate your space Wed 10am – 4pm, Thu 10am – 5pm, Fri 10am – 5pm Sat 10am – 4pm and Sundays in December 10am – 2pm.
There is often the opportunity for you to work on your product within your space, however this does depend on the individual requirements of your making process.
Consider teaming up with a friend whose product compliments yours to share responsibilities associated with operating a shop.
Deadline for applications is 9am, Monday 19 26 October 2015.
Renew Newcastle, in association with The Lock-Up, is excited to announce that Simon Hipgrave will join us for Creative Talks on Friday 02 October 2015.
ABOUT SIMON HIPGRAVE
Simon Hipgrave founded The Hungry Workshop, a combined design and letterpress studio in Melbourne. Their offering of design and letterpress means they’re communicators that understand production, and printmakers that understand communication. Both areas positively impact and influence each other, bringing a deeper understanding of their clients’ objectives to whichever task we apply our skills to.
The Hungry Workshop’s focus on the craft of design and their creative approach to letterpress printing gives their work a unique aesthetic. All of which is underpinned by unwavering attention to detail, combined with strategic thinking.

ABOUT CREATIVE TALKS
Renew Newcastle presents Creative Talks, a series of breakfast lectures by people who are making a living from their creativity. Taking place on a Friday morning each month a well-regarded creative will be invited to speak for 20 minutes about the lessons they have learned growing their creativity into a commercial success. This is followed by an audience Q&A and the opportunity to mingle with local creatives from a wide range of backgrounds, over a stand-up breakfast.
Meet, greet and eat at Creative Talks.
HOST & SPONSORS
Creative Talks is kindly hosted by The Lock-Up.
Renew Newcastle has now supported more than 200 creative projects to activate over 74 properties in Newcastle’s CBD, bringing life back to otherwise vacant spaces.
On the evening of Friday 11 October Renew Newcastle General Manager Christopher Saunders joined friends and colleagues of Nick de la Force and Amy Black to celebrate the opening of our 200th project, De La Force Creative, at 23 Wolfe Street.
In February 2013 Renew celebrated 100 projects in just over four years. A mere 18 months later we’ve doubled the number of projects we’ve helped to access empty spaces and added two new property partners, Newcastle City Council and Hunter Water, in the process.
The general public will be able to visit De La Force Creative and 17 other projects as part of our next guided walking tour, Spring City Walk, from 5pm on Thursday 1 October, starting at The Emporium (185 Hunter St Mall).
Renew also achieved a big milestone this month, reaching more than 5,000 likes on our Facebook page, due in part to the successful launch of Marcus Westbury’s book Creating Cities and Bespoke TV show.
