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.


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.

This year we’re focused on developing our public spaces into an inclusive space for creative and community-driven events. We want to resurface the courtyard for universal accessibility, protect our leafy trees in perpetuity, purchase seating and furniture for events, maintain our heritage listed mural and invest in wayfinding, lighting and other infrastructure.




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."
