THE ART DISTRICT
Dedicated to artistic and passionate young people, The Art District is constructed from recycled shipping containers converted into more than 25 retail boutiques, cafes, art studios and workshops. Shipping containers can be readily modified with a range of creature comforts, and can be connected and stacked to create modular, efficient spaces for a fraction of the cost, labor and resources of more conventional materials.
Being described as a “Meanwhile project”, The Art District will be shifted from towns to towns periodically to offers a cornucopia of art, music, food & film events, as well as outdoor live music performances and event space. The project’s aim is to support local artists and designers by providing them affordable co-working space for start-up, sharing and enterprising their artworks. Over 10 shipping containers will be used in total, proving both a quick and environmentally-friendly means of construction.
