We acknowledge the traditional owners and sovereign custodians of the land on which Collingwood Yards is situated, the Wurundjeri people of the Woiwurrung language group. We extend our respect to their Ancestors and all First Peoples and Elders past, present, and future.

Support Us

Collingwood Yards is operated by Contemporary Arts Precincts Ltd, an independent not-for-profit without recurrent government funding.

We’re a small team working hard to support hundreds of artists and creative workers, and to make a place that is inclusive and welcoming for our local community.

How you can help


We’re building a place for future generations of Victorians to experience the diversity of contemporary art in the community, and we need your help.

Our unique model at Collingwood Yards generates income to support our day-to-day operations, our small team and the care of our precinct. It means we’re able to keep artists, not-for-profit organisations, First Nations artists and organisations situated in this neighbourhood by delivering subsidised and stabilised rents. 

As costs increase our capacity to continue to deliver the above is more important and urgent than ever. This year we are asking our supporters to join us in raising funds to safeguard the maintenance of our heritage listed buildings, public space and public artworks in perpetuity, and to ensure the ongoing support that artists and arts organisations desperately need. Subsidised tenants make up 83% of our community. Your donation will ensure that we can deliver this vital support now and into the future.

Please consider making a donation to Collingwood Yards this year.





You can support Collingwood Yards through individual giving, bequests and corporate partnerships. Collingwood Yards is operated by Contemporary Arts Precincts Ltd, a charitable entity with DGR status.

This means that all donations $2 and above made to the Contemporary Arts Precincts Public Fund are tax-deductible. Please make a donation via the form below. You can also contact us to make a donation or request a partnership proposal.



Our partners and supporters enable the critical work of our organisations – creating and ensuring affordable and stimulating spaces for artists in the inner city.

Our individual supporters can make contributions toward specific spaces, programs, capital improvements or for the organisation’s work in general.


Collingwood Yards offers scaleable, meaningful and valuable ways to contribute to the arts and your local community.

We work with our corporate partners to ensure creative and  quality opportunities for engagement  promotion that aligns with our shared values and ambitions.

"Collingwood Yards provides an exciting convergence point for diverse creative communities of artists and organisations."
