A new home – Gorman House Arts Centre

I’ve given up my beloved home office for a few months while we build a new one (and hence a new house to go with it).

In the meantime, I’ve taken up a space at Canberra’s iconic Gorman House Arts Centre.

One of Canberra’s oldest buildings, Gorman House was constructed in the 1920s as hostel accomodation for the lowest paid government employees. It stayed as a hostel until the 1970s, when presumably the government started paying its public servants enough to afford a place of their own.

The building has since undergone significant renovations and is now home to many of Canberra’s artists and creative organisations.

It’s a great place to spend the working week, with co-workers that range from violin makers to illustrators to TV soundtrack composers. Plus, I reckon it must have once of the loveliest courtyards in the city.
