Sustainable Housing for Artists and Creatives (SHAC) Co-operative are Starting Some Good.

Fremantle loves its arts but one of our key challenges has been keeping places for artists to work and live in Fremantle.

One great community organisation who is making this happen is Sustainable Housing for Artists and Creatives (SHAC) Co-operative. SHAC are developing sustainable and affordable housing for creatives at WGV in White Gum Valley.

The development which is happening with Access Housing comprises of 13 residential dwellings of varying sizes as well a Community Hub & Creative Studio.

SHAC is currently raising funds to purchase the Community Hub & Creative Studio – a two-storey structure that will facilitate a community access hub on the ground level and open-access studios above.  It is envisioned that the community hub will play an important and integral role in the local community: a place to meet, connect, share, explore, create, play, design, exhibit …

To this end SHAC has set-up an online crowdfunding campaign: 

As an incentive, a number of SHAC members have kindly offered a number of exciting rewards for donors including a photographic image, performance tickets, screen-printing and weaving workshops, puppets and more. Check it out.
