Announcing the launch of Northcity4
A new era in creative endeavours
Melbourne’s newest creative initiative, Northcity4, is the brainchild of five talented and forward thinking artists who have come together to create a new contemporary jewellery & object studio and school in Brunswick.
This collective, which is made up of highly regarded contemporary jewellers and small object makers, is developing a work and educational space that will inspire a new style of artistic practice, never before seen in Melbourne, and is committed to an environmentally sustainable work ethic.

WHERE / WHO – 61 Weston Street, Brunswick 3056
The NC4 studio and school is the initiative of artists Romani Benjamin, Katherine Bowman, Anna Davern, Caz Guiney and Ali Limb. This group of artists has come together with the aim of sharing their knowledge, skills and techniques through mentorships, seminars, access studios and workshops.
NC4 is a not-for-profit organisation with a shared commitment to environmentally sustainable arts practice that promotes and supports the integration of sustainability into all aspects of contemporary jewellery and object design. NC4 will work with Sustainability Victoria and Moreland Energy Foundation to reach its green goals and to ensure the NC4 communal footprint is minimised or off-set where possible.
The NC4 warehouse space will offer studios for long and short term tenancies for working makers and artists as well as an education program of short courses, weekend workshops and holiday programs, for those with and without previous training.
