It has been a fun-filled year for the Colour Box Studio, although sadly this will be the last program for the unique artistic hub in Melbourne's West, before the building will be demolished to make way for a 12 story apartment building.

Members and fans of Footscray's creative hub should not be too sad, as Amie Batalibasi, Founder and Director of Colour Box Studio explains:

"We may have to move on but it's not the end for Colour Box Studio as we will continue to exist as a Pop Up Creative Space - so keep an eye out for us! Since we began a year ago we've remained 100% independently funded and run by volunteers, and we've showcased over 150 artists."

"I'm excited about Pop Up prospects for 2014"%% Amie Batalibasi Founder and Director of Colour Box Studio

This will be your last chance to enjoy and celebrate the Colour Box Studio's unique Pop Up Programs, so why not support the creative hub's final few months by learning to make a special gift for Christmas, or by choosing to buy a locally produced Christmas gift from the Colour Box Studio's Pop Up Shop.
