short st art space and studios
12 artist studio's and gallery

5 short st
footscray, melbourne, australia
2003 - 2006

my partner geoff crosby and i brought the warehouse at 5 short st footscray in september 2001. we started
construction in 2002 moved in 8 months later and converted the other half from the residence into 12 artist
studios and gallery, which we ran for 5 years. short st studios were well supported from the moment they
opened. melbourne has a vibrant arts community with many serious practitioners in need of good studio space
and facilities. the gallery needed more energy than we could allow in order to draw people over the river to the west.
