Collingwood Yards is run by Contemporary Arts Precincts, a charitable social enterprise based in Melbourne.

Our first and flagship project is the transformation and redevelopment of the former Collingwood Technical school into Collingwood Yards — a sustainable, affordable long term home for arts and creativity in inner Melbourne.

Our aim is to ensure that the core operations of our spaces can be financially self sustaining at below market rents. Both the Collingwood Yards site and the organisation built to run it have been designed from the ground up to minimise the cost and complexity of operations. The efficiencies generated will be invested back in the community through more affordable rents and investment in future facilities, initiatives and programs.
