Cultural and Creative Support Program

Local Cultural and Creative Businesses will receive sponsored access to mentoring, office space and capacity building workshops in a new initiative at CoWork Newtown

The Newtown Precinct Business Association (NPBA) has secured the premises at 404 King Street to open a Business Accelerator. This Accelerator is called ‘CoWork Newtown‘, and it’s objective is to help locals Do Better Business.

One of our key projects as part of this accelerator is our Cultural and Creative Support Program. This program is being developed to help get local creatives off their kitchen tables and into an environment that will help their business to grow.

Applications for this program will open in December with more details around the requirements available shortly. 

Approved local Cultural or Creative businesses will be provided with an analysis of their current business, a customised program of business mentoring, an office space (if required) and registration for capacity building workshops. This tailored support will help them to concentrate on developing their passion and growing their business.
