A change is in the air

It’s official: in 2015, Object will move in the City of Sydney’s Creative Hub at 101-110 William Street, Darlinghurst.

Object is set to take over the ground floor spaces, while the guys from HUB Sydney, Romance was Born and a selection of architects, designers and artists-in-residence occupy levels 1-3.

As we prepare for the move, we’re also getting ready for Object’s 50th year (and beyond) with new staff arrivals, a new creative vision, and programming bursting with creative stories from designers and makers across Australia.

William St Creative Hub

Object’s move into the William St Creative Hub has been made possible through the City of Sydney’s accommodation grants program - an incredible initiative that helps support support community groups, organisations and services that encourage community development, enhance social, cultural and environmental programs and services and address community opportunities and needs. Through this program, organisations like Object are able to lease community facilities from the City of Sydney at a reduced rate, allowing them to continue to making these contributions and delivering these services - and helping to make Sydney a truly vibrant and sustainable city.

Right now we’re busily preparing to put our best face forward and make a bit of a splash in the new location - making the most of the busy street life and vibrant culture of the local area. Object’s staff have been busily pounding the pavement in recent weeks, getting to know the streets and lane ways of our new haunt (and meeting our new neighbours) over a series of recent research trips.

Stay tuned for updates on our farewell party for St Margaret’s, happening later this year.

Nifty fifty

As if the move itself wasn’t big news, we’re also looking forward to celebrating Object’s milestone 50th year in 2015.

We’ve got a lot in store for next year as we look to celebrate the 50 year history of outstanding Australian craft and design that Object has helped to promote and showcase.

New arrivals

To help us celebrate the first 50 years of Object (and to help to make sure we’ll be around to celebrate the next 50), the organisation has welcomed three new staff arrivals in key roles in the last month.

Joining the team at Object are Dermot McGuire, our new Digital Media & Marketing Coordinator; Rose Downie, our new Learning Coordinator; and Alex Porter-Hepworth, our new Stakeholder Engagement Coordinator.

Drop a line and say hi to the new arrivals, and expect to hear a lot more from these guys real soon…
