Event Spaces and Functions


Located a short walk south of the Queen Victoria Markets and west of Flagstaff Gardens, Blender Studios is the CBD's oldest warehouse art studio, and ideal for events ranging from pop-up shops and exhibitions to campaign launches and corporate functions. Spaces available include a shopfront gallery space with projection capabilities, an event space surrounded by artist workspaces and one of Melbourne's most colourful, art filled laneways.

The front gallery (Dark Horse Experiment) opens onto Franklin Street, with white walls and finished concrete floors making for a simple backdrop that gives exhibitions the spotlight. The front windows can host projection pieces, visible from both inside and outside the gallery.

The rear multi-purpose area is ideal for functions or pop-up exhibitions, with high warehouse ceilings and natural light, surrounded by working artist spaces. The in-progress nature of the studios means that every event has a different creative backdrop, or you can use the movable white walls to create a more intimate and clean environment.

The studio space can open into Blender's private laneway. With walls covered in art from some of Autralia's most talented and recognised street artists and lined with bluestone, it's an ideal backdrop for photo and video shoots, appearing in Beyonce's Flawless video and much more.

Blender's creative team are available to provide creative development assistance to ensure a successful event.
