Collingwood Yards Open Day

Sat 13th March, 2021
12:00pm – 6:00pm
Collingwood Yards
35 Johnston Street, Collingwood
Melbourne's new multilevel arts hub – in a large former school – is opening its doors for live music, projection art, gallery exhibitions and an art and design market.

Collingwood Yards has been a long time coming. After five years of transformation, the former Collingwood Technical School is now home to artists’ studios, galleries, a radio station, and retail stores, with a restaurant, rooftop bar and basement speakeasy still to come.

To celebrate the launch, its doors are opening wide to the public for a day full of art, activities and entertainment.

Emerging musical artists from record label The Push are performing at Keith Haring's restored mural; there are also live sets curated by Collingwood Yards tenants such as Hope Street Radio; and DJs from PBS106.7FM are spinning tunes into the late afternoon.

Studios and galleries are also opening, giving the public a chance to interact with artists and get behind-the-scenes looks at their creative processes.

The Centre for Projection Art is lighting up the night sky, while elsewhere around the hub there are screenings, art installations and public workshops.

A new art and design market is popping up in the courtyard, with a floral backdrop by XXFlos and new work to purchase from ceramicist Tantri Mustika and design houses The Social Studio, Gammin Threads and Bananalands, and other tenants.

From 12pm to 6pm.
