In a first for Australian museums, ACMI will open a collaborative work space for the creative industry, called ACMI X.
ACMI X will be the shared space of ACMI’s operational offices and a sixty seat co-working studio in a 2000sqm state-of-the-art office space, designed by award-winning architects Six Degrees.
Located in the heart of Melbourne’s flourishing Southbank arts precinct, ACMI X will offer a new type of co-working community, one that unites start-ups and practitioners from across creative industries.
The ambitious initiative – dream child of ACMI Director and CEO, Katrina Sedgwick – will foster creativity and collaboration, experimentation and inspiration and will expand the way ACMI engages with industry and practitioners – one of ACMI’s existing key partners, the National Film and Sound Archive, will co-locate to ACMI X, and 60 additional ACMI X places are available for the short and long term, with entry by application.
ACMI X opens for business in April 2016.
