Pollinators’ new CreativeHub premises is transforming into the vibrant, multipurpose creative space that Pollinators have planned for, with the Arts and Cultural Development Council (ACDC) the latest venture to move into the West End CreativeHub premises at 189 Marine Tce.

The ACDC move marks a major transformation for the region’s peak arts organisation, which is not only moving premises but also revamping the range of services it offers to the Mid West arts community.

ACDC Chairman Brendan Penzer said the move marked exciting times for the organisation.

“The move to CreativeHub will mean we’re part of this really exciting creative space,” Mr Penzer said.

“We’ll have a dynamic and flexible new exhibition and workshop space, and we’ll be around fellow creatives, who also use CreativeHub.

“We’re going through a period of real renewal and this move is one part of our transformation.

“It’s exciting times here at ACDC and we can’t wait to really revitalise the arts community from this new venue.”

Pollinators Space Lead Angie West said the ACDC move to CreativeHub married perfectly with Pollinators’ vision of offering a collaborative space for makers and creators to co-locate in a maker space.

“ACDC joins The Comedy Emporium and Headspace Geraldton as arts and youth services working from the same venue,” Mrs West said.

“We’ve also got plans for the entire top floor of the CreativeHub building located next door to be transformed into a ‘MakerSpace’ for smaller-scale creative ventures that will be able to link in with ACDC for exhibition space and workshops in the future.

“With the gorgeous artwork on the front of the building, and these exciting creative ventures inside, there’s a real sense of vibrancy, innovation and excitement – which is exactly what Pollinators had hoped for. 

"Watch this space for more developments at the CreativeHub.” The CreativeHub is supported by Panaceum Group and St John of God Hospital. ACDC is funded by the City of Greater Geraldton and Country Arts WA.
