On the 1st of March, 2018, Local crowdfunding film research project Hubcaps to Creative Hubs was screened to the public for the first time at the Geelong Library and Heritage Centre. We are excited to announce that it is now available to watch for free online! This Film research project was a collaborative effort between Deakin Universitythe University of Melbourne and Creative Geelong Inc.  The project team partnered up with leading television documentary producer Nick Searle to tell the stories of Geelong’s industrial sites currently undergoing creative transformations, pointing to a new creative and maker culture.

The films include three of Geelong’s former industrial sites currently undergoing a creative transformation. These documentaries are now available to watch online, FREE to the public:

The films encourage further investment in the local economy and provide broadcast-quality marketing material for the region to help promote and strengthen the local creative industries sector. Creative industries across the G21 region account for 8% of all employment with over 7,800 jobs. The role of creative industries in our region is helping shape Geelong’s Clever & Creative future.
