Creative Spaces in collaboration with Sunshine Coast Council is excited to launch The Crows Nest Artist in Residence. Perched atop the Maroochy Sailing Club, the Crows Nest is a small space with views out across Maroochy River towards Mt Coolum. Situated on beautiful Chambers Island, accessed via a footbridge, this new creative studio could be yours, free for up to three months.
The space would suit writers, digital and fine artists and creatives with a lighter footprint. It can accomodate one person looking for inspiration and solitude or a collective of two looking to collaborate in paradise.
