Join our tenant community

Home to more than 127 creatives, organisations and wellbeing practitioners, one of the key benefits of being based at the Convent is the support, collaboration and cross-pollination our creative community offers. The Abbotsford Convent Foundation supports a vibrant and active community and space is in high demand. Joining the Convent as a tenant provides a unique opportunity to be part of Australia’s largest creative community.

The Convent offers a diverse range of studio and office spaces, ranging from 10–120 square metres.

Tenants are invited to be part of the Convent’s year-round program of events, and exhibit at St Heliers Street Gallery. They also receive discounted venue hire rates and car parking. Tenants have access to shared kitchenette facilities, bathrooms and showers, and complimentary WiFi. Studios are self-contained, lockable and have hydronic heating. On site you’ll find an assortment of great food options, regular weekend markets, two galleries and an extensive program of events and workshops. The Convent’s sprawling heritage gardens offer the perfect respite from your working day.

Short term tenancies and upcoming vacancies will be listed here, or you can register your interest with Leonie Wray, our Tenant Community Engagement Manager.
