We’d like to dedicate this blog to the team at Artsource and Spacemarket for all their efforts in resurrecting an old, disheveled, abandoned structure into The Ward – a vibrant collection of studios for artists and creative professionals alike.
The building was once a maternity ward known as the Swan Maternity Hospital, built in 1913 to meet the growing population that came with the boom times of the Gold Rush. Over time the building’s importance for the public health system waned until it was abandoned after the GFC.
Close to the heart of Perth City and only a stone’s throw from Leederville’s main strip these studios are such a rare and valuable opportunity for artists and creative professionals to work within a creative space in such a central location.
Our new studio is an excellent headquarters for us to undertake the many facets of our video production projects; be it the planning, scriptwriting or post-production work. And being so close to Perth City means that we are able to access a large variety of locations for film shoots.
