Interested in new co work spaces in Darwin?!


Are you interested in co work? Rust 490 is seeking non-binding Expressions of Interest to help assess the viability of a new co-working space on the edge of Darwin CBD in 2020.

This EOI began for ONE co work space, but now options are emerging for more than one space, so lets spread the word!

Rust 490 has been working in the ideas, creative disruption and business fostering space in Darwin for 5 years, inspired by technology and the extraordinary creativity of people in our community. Viable creative co work spaces are a known key to regional thriving, and its timely to explore options for Darwin.

To assess the feasibility of a co-working space on the edge of Darwin CBD in 2020 we are seeking non-binding Expressions of Interest. Even if you aren’t a desk candidate right now, this form is designed to welcome and include your feedback. Completing this EOI takes 2.5 minutes.

You might be in finance, alternative energy, creative, med tech, construction, a student, an artist, or unclassifiable. This EOI is industry agnostic – it’s about where you prefer to be based when you work.

This is not about government or universities or mainstream businesses- this is outside established interests. It’s about a “grass roots” decision to investigate opening co working spaces where people choose to work on their terms alongside others.  And it’s about a co work business that stands on its own feet to survive and thrive.

That’s why there is this Expression of Interest- to assess the feasibility of a new Darwin co work space (s).
