The Mill Adelaide is not just another coworking space with desks and kiosks made to work. It is a new concept operating in Adelaide and presents an opportunity for creatives and artists to collaborate, integrate and work together in studios and spaces. The founders Amber Cronin and Erin Fowler created this concept to become the middle ground for visual arts, movement dance and theatre. So basically it is a place where artists and choreographers can come and work together to create something new, something different. The incubator model on which it works enables artists and creatives to exhibit their art and performance on a common platform.
This space works with a concept where there are associate artists from various backgrounds residing in the workspace. To create a fusion work the associated artists can come and join them in the same workspace to develop and earn an opportunity to represent themselves. This is the best place for struggling artists who need a platform to jump-start their career and leverage through networking. Above all, The Mill Adelaide has garnered full support of the South Australian government through the Arts South Australia association. Plus they are also associated with various national and international artistic communities and associations.

This is a rather new concept in the coworking industry and somehow the founders have leveraged the concept of shared workspaces and mixed it with art. That is something artistic on its own level, won’t you say?
