Eastern Riverina Arts’ RENEW Wagga project breathes life into vacant city buildings and unlocks new opportunities for creative people in Wagga Wagga. We will increase foot traffic, promote local creative industries, and showcase our empty spaces to potential lease holders.

Using the Renew Australia framework, we facilitate short term usage of empty CBD spaces by artists and creative entrepreneurs. Creative businesses make a main street more vibrant, unique and profitable for everyone. With bespoke professional support, we’re helping local creative people establish sustainable businesses that will thrive into the future and grow the local creative ecosystem.

Renew Wagga is a boost to the economy and a win for our community.

In 2021, successful RENEW Wagga candidates F.stop Workshop, The Little Yellow House Gallery & Studio, Middlemost and The Shy Fox opened their doors in prime CBD shopfronts.

RENEW Wagga is a project of Eastern Riverina Arts, made possible by the support of the NSW Government through the Stronger Country Communities Fund.

RENEW Wagga is an official Affiliate Program of Renew Australia. We gratefully acknowledge the support and partnership of Wagga Wagga City Council
