THE SUBSTATION, NEWPORT

The Substation in Newport is one of Melbourne’s most exciting arts destinations, and is quickly establishing a name for itself as a vibrant artistic hub for the people of Hobsons Bay and beyond. After a 15 year restoration process led by a small band of committed volunteers, The Substation opened in 2008 as one of Melbourne’s community-based, contemporary arts venue.

It aspires to be one of Melbourne’s leading presenters of the Arts across all art forms, and boasts a 250 seat, flexible performance space, creative development studio, visual arts workshops & studio spaces, as well as the western suburbs’ most extensive gallery space. The Substation seeks to establish a unique brand of programming that seamless brings together innovative community-based projects and the best of contemporary arts programming. Another initiative that sets Melbourne as the Arts Capital of Australia.

  1. I spent a few minutes trying to think of other old substations that had been renewed and re-used. A power supply substation, in Deakin Ave Mildura, was built in 1936 and features the typical symmetrical lines of Art Deco. I love it when good architecture is protected from modern destruction.
