New in 2019, Makeshift is professional development by artists, for artists. Switching between intensive workshops and gatherings, Season One is led by Robin Fox, THE RABBLE, Samira Farah and Areej Nur.
Makeshift Workshops are three-day intensives for artists working across disciplines.
Led by a different artist/collective each time, Makeshift workshops are designed to offer artists time and space to investigate, collaborate and explore eclectic ideas and radical approaches to artmaking with a group of cross-disciplinary peers without the pressure of an outcome.
Makeshift lead artists determine participants’ application and selection process. Arts House provides the space and resources to make it happen.
Selected participants are provided with a stipend and lunch.
If you require access support, including Auslan interpretation, please let us know when applying.

Deadline for applications: this deadline has now passed
Makeshift Gatherings are an opportunity for artists new or familiar to Arts House to gather at North Melbourne Town Hall over food and drinks to talk about art with people who make art.
Each gathering is hosted by a special guest or collective who bring a different topic to the dinner table for discussion. Important arts enquiries, trends and questions that aren’t getting the air time they deserve are all on the menu for consideration and you’re invited to dig in!
A light vegetarian dinner is provided.
If you require access support, including Auslan interpretation, please let us know when booking.
