Over the last year, the REMIX Agency has been working with the team at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image to develop ACMI X; a next generation facility for creative entrepreneurs exploring the future of the moving image. ACMI X represents the first collaborative working space for the creative industries set up by a major cultural institution in Australia.
ACMI X is a 60 seat co-working studio and social and events hub in a 2000sqm state of the art office space, designed by award winning architects Six Degrees and located in the heart of Melbourne’s flourishing Southbank arts precinct.
The vision of ACMI X is to connect makers, thinkers, viewers and players in a vibrant space – both physical and digital – a range of cross disciplinary practitioners will co-work alongside ACMI’s curatorial, production and administrative staff, creating a dynamic engine room for the museum of the 21st Century. ACMI X will house the game changers that are shaping the way we create and consume content helping nurture the new creative businesses and cultural entrepreneurs of tomorrow. From tech start-ups to film makers, script writers to game and app developers; graphic and web designers to visual artists,
The ambitious initiative will foster creativity and collaboration, experimentation and inspiration and will expand the way ACMI engages with industry and practitioners. By shifting to a model of co-creation with new collaborators and partners, ACMI is redefining its role as commissioner and curator, and embracing creative risk and experimentation, to develop a new type of creative institution.
ACMI X opened for business in April 2016. Applications are now open via acmi.net.au/acmix
