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.

The ‘Hubcaps to Creative Hubs’ campaign captured the imagination of the community with grants  given from Geelong Connected Communities and the City of Greater Geelong, and strong pledges from the TACthe Costa Property Groupthe David Hamilton Property Groupthe Geelong Chamber of CommerceFyshoG21Gartland Property and UBU Gallery.
