Organisations we’ve worked with, and continue to work with, include The Australian Centre for Social Innovation, Renew Australia, Renew Newcastle, Tuxedo Cat and the Adelaide West End Association.
Renew Adelaide and our sister organisation Renew Newcastle worked together to provide a platform for Renew Australia. This is a national organisation designed to support the roll out of comparable programs nationally and provide consultancy and advice to those seeking to set up empty space activation projects. It received significant seed funding through The Australian Centre for Social Innovation’s ‘Bold Ideas, Better Lives Challenge’ and is now funded by Social Traders.
The Australian Centre for Social Innovation was the primary funding source for Renew Adelaide, and the first stages of Renew Australia and continues to provide us with in kind support in the form of advice and mentorship as well as free, serviced offices. Much thanks are due particularly to Christian and Brenton for their ongoing patient advice.
The Adelaide West End Association was the first organisation to fund Renew Adelaide, and continues to work tirelessly for the regeneration of Adelaide’s West End despite limited resources and significant hurdles. Their Chair, Andrew Wallace, and manager, Helen Page, are also a wealth of knowledge on the management and history of the city.
