The primary activity of the cooperative shall be to provide opportunities for musicians and other arts professionals to build sustainable livelihoods in the West End, Brisbane area, through:
(a) provision of professional-quality studio spaces to members, on an at- cost basis, for the undertaking of their professional practice;
(b) promotion, support and resourcing of services provided by members;
(c) facilitation of a collegial community to assist members to build, grow and enrich their own professional practice; and
(d) strategic accumulation of spaces, equipment, assets, tools of trade and other resources for the benefit of members and the broader community.
[The cooperative responds to the pressure placed on musicians and other low-income arts practitioners by rising inner city rents, and acknowledges the rights of such persons to remain “in-place” in the West End area. ]
