The Tour will conclude at Steel City Collective (451 Hunter St) which is a creative event management space offering all kinds of design energy by local musos and artists. They undertake live art, facilitate workshops and provide commissioned art works among other things.
Renew Newcastle is making a huge difference in Newcastle by providing short and medium term leases to local ventures in otherwise disused buildings or buildings awaiting redevelopment. The result is not only a more ascetically pleasing city, but it is provided an incredible opportunity for local artists and artisans to have a community presence.
