The RedWest Creatives Co-op is a a brand new co-operative starting up in Melbourne's outer west whose mission is to strengthen the arts sector. RedWest will endeavour to do this through a variety of activities such as pop-up exhibitions and performances, events for artists, and by providing services to local artists. Services provided will include the auspice of grants, advocacy and support in working with local council, and providing access to networks and promotional opportunities.
RedWest aims to grow its offerings to its members as the organisation grows to include services like public liability insurance and online gallery & storefront during its search for a permanent, physical home. In the meantime RedWest operates out of the Wyndham Arts Incubator space located in Werribee's Old Shire Offices at 49 Watton St, Werribee VIC 3030.
