Who are we?
Shed180 is located within the West Melbourne Waterfront precinct which is due to undergo major urban revitalisation. Perri Projects who are leading this project also own and manage the Shed, which has been curated by Romy Paltoglou from Alleycat Creative (an urban art consultancy) and Dave MSA.
Alleycat Creative was engaged to work with Perri Projects to assist in the inclusion of urban art elements throughout the site as it transforms into the West Melbourne Waterfront.
Perri have big plans for the future development of the precinct, with a focus on including major urban art contribution and culture within the developing waterfront area.
In order to promote the vibrancy of the area today and show that an exciting new era dawns, the idea was born to transform the exterior of the current blank industrial walls into a vibrant, dynamic explosion of colour and life celebrating hand made urban art in Melbourne.
The transformation on the site will begin in 2016 and the West Melbourne Waterfront precinct will be open to public within the next 3-6 years. There will be a very strong artistic presence throughout the public spaces and visitors will be able to explore and recognise artworks completed by all of the artists who have contributed to Shed180 today.
