Albury City Council is developing a Maker Space and Creative Industries Incubator at the old Pump House on Waterworks Road, Albury. and is seeking feedback from artists and craftspeople in the Albury-Wodonga Region.
The facility will include a range of equipment and machinery to support art and craft making and production within a variety of contexts. Albury City believes the PumpHouse will nurture the development of creative industries and provide a space not only for the creation of art but also for experimenting, learning and networking.
A document is currently being developed to define how the PumpHouse will work including general management, access, staffing, programming and membership models etc.
The Council would like to hear from artists and craftspeople - professional, hobby, emerging - to discover who's out there, what they need and how a facility like this can play a role in developing the cultural sector more broadly.
The PumpHouse Artists and Craftspeople Survey is now available:

The pumps at the now decommissioned Albury PumpHouse were first turned on in January 1886, supplying a reliable source of running water to Albury for the first time. In May 2019 Albury & District Historical Society members were able to see the historic pump house in something close to its original state. and hear news of its future development as a creative makers space.
