News | CAP welcomes the Bank of Melbourne as our Corporate Founding Partner

Very excited to announce that we’ve welcomed the Bank of Melbourne on board as our Founding Corporate Partner. We’ve been working with the Bank to develop a partnership that truly supports our vision for CAP. With their support added to our list of incredible Founding Partners we’ve been able to make huge moves on bringing the project to life.

We’ve collaborated with the Bank of Melbourne to offer an residency for creative enterprises at CAP. Set to launch and open for applications in mid-2019, the year-long residency will include rental at CAP, a $10,000 Bank of Melbourne bank account, mentoring from industry leaders, and the opportunity to collaborate with the CAP tenant community.

News | CAP welcomes Izzy Roberts-Orr to its Board of Directors

We’re thrilled to be welcoming artist, producer and festival director, Izzy Roberts-Orr to our Board. Izzy is a Narrm-based writer, producer and broadcaster who grew up between Footscray and Alice Springs. Izzy is Artistic Director and Co-CEO of the Emerging Writers’ Festival, and the Digital Writers’ Festival and a Co-Director of Broadwave podcasting network. Her practice spans new media, sound, stage, page, curation and public space and explores feminisms, futures and empathy. We’re glad and proud to have Izzy join us as we launch into a tremendous stage of activity and development at CAP.

Izzy brings her experience both as an artist herself and a champion of artists to the CAP Board.

“Artists are often at the forefront of great innovation – but makers need space to be messy, and support to take risks. Creative communities make up so much of what we’re proud of in this city, and as our population booms and rents increase in urban areas, it’s vital we ensure there is still a home here for creative industries and for independent makers and thinkers.”

CAP’s Chair, Daniel Besen, welcomed Izzy saying

“Izzy’s expertise strengthens and diversifies the Contemporary Arts Precincts Board at a pivotal time for the organisation. We’re extraordinarily pleased to welcome Izzy to the Board and look forward to working with her”.
