The Makers’ Space is supported by  the Colac Otway Shire and currently auspiced by Creative Otways.  The Makers’ Space is the Colac community art space,  a hub for artists in our region providing advice and skills development.  We seek opportunities, collaborate with other groups in the area and continue to look outwards to ensure that our arts program and culture are in dialogue with the rest of the Shire, Southwest Victoria and beyond. We are an organisation that enriches the cultural life of our region through innovative, inclusive, consultative projects and programs.

The Makers Space aims –

  • to maintain premises large enough in which to carry out group activities while also providing individuals with the creative space they need.
  • to engage and encourage the community to participate in the arts through demonstrations, exhibitions, special events and classes and workshops.
  • to inspire and foster creativity as a positive and sustainable force that enriches our community and establishes the region as a premier arts destination.
  • to support practices and technologies that will cover a broad range of interests.
  • to be sustainable by exploring opportunities and facilitating best practice for financial management and support.
