Youth Arts in Yarra

The Yarra City Council’s Block Studios is a creative studio space for young and emerging artists to develop new work and networks within the City of Yarra.

Operating out of Yarra Youth Services on Napier Street in Fitzroy, Block Studios has built a reputation for celebrating the diversity of the City of Yarra and providing creative outcomes that reflect this diversity.

Focusing on a model that brings established and emerging artists together to collaborate, Block Studios is a safe and accommodating space running free after school programs, professional practice opportunities and unique exhibiting outcomes for young people.
