Interested in a new co work space in Darwin?!


Rust 490 has been working in the ideas, creative disruption, connections and business fostering space in Darwin for 5 years, inspired by technology and the extraordinary creativity of people in our community.

Like so many of us Rust 490 has been seeking ways to regenerate Darwin (it won’t be “the next big project”!), and now seems like a great time to revisit opening a new co working space.

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.

You might be in finance, alternative energy, creative, med tech, construction, a student, an artist, or unclassifiable. This 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. 

This is about a “grass roots” decision to investigate opening a co working space 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.

Here’s the proposition (its in the EOI form too)

We offer you a co-work space from which many other things might unfold. This is the basic proposition-

  • – Daylight
  • – 24/7 Secure Access
  • – CCTV Security
  • – Internet plus standard amenities
  • – Meeting or workshop spaces
  • – Lounge chairs
  • – Greenery
  • – Principles of sustainability and re-purposing
  • – Approximately 25 permanent desks starting at $75 per week ex GST
  • – Start in 2020

Here’s the EOI form – its simple, only 3 questions for you to express interest  or not in a permanent or part time desk in this co work opportunity, and to offer any comments at all on this proposition.

This EOI closes COB Tuesday 28 January 2020.
