Cultural and Creative Support Program

Free Office Space and Mentoring For Local Creatives

CoWork Newtown is a new business accelerator opening on King Street in Newtown. We will be providing locals with mentoring services and affordable office spaces to help them grow their business.

The Cultural and Creative Support Program‘ is an initiative which is sponsored by the City of Sydney and will see up to 30 local creative and/or cultural businesses receive FREE support to help them grow.
