The last program before demolition:
Colour Box Studio has run for one year from it’s current Nicholson St, Footscray premises hosting a Digital Media Program, Writing & Performance Program, a Public Art Program, a Fashion Program and more. The Summer Pop Up Program will be Colour Box Studio’s last program at that location before the building is demolished to make way for the proposed 12 story apartment building.
Colour Box Studio founder and director says: “We may have to move on but it’s not the end for Colour Box Studio as we will continue to exist as a Pop Up Creative Space – so keep an eye out for us! Since we began a year ago we’ve remained 100% independently funded and run by volunteers, and we’ve showcased over 150 artists. I’m looking forward to the next few months with our Members & Volunteers Program and the Summer Pop Up Program and I’m excited about Pop Up prospects for 2014.”
