Clyde Street Precinct Tour

Event Description


Since 2021, the University of Newcastle has partnered with Clyde Street Precinct to develop future pathways and possibilities for creative arts and industries students through connecting with real world practitioners and collectives at Newcastle’s largest home of creativity.


The precinct at 50 Clyde St Hamilton North has grown exponentially during the last 6 years through the collaborative efforts of precinct co-founders David Saddington, Michele Oshan and Braddon Snape. This expansion now comprises a unique combination of creative and manufacturing services from waste rescue to vintage motorcycle repair, including 15 creative industry businesses that are home to many of our professional academic staff specialising in creative practice across music, film, animation and transdisciplinary forms.

At the heart of the precinct is The Creator Incubator (TCI). Founded in 2017 by University of Newcastle Alumni, Dr Braddon Snape, it is now home to 38 resident artists, designers, makers and thinkers from the emerging to some of the regions most established.

This special tour will provide a unique overview of this remarkable grass roots community and a chance to hear from the people behind it.

Time and Date

Chromatic Festival and The University of Newcastle acknowledge the traditional custodians of the lands within our footprint areas: Awabakal Nation, Darkinjung Nation, Biripai Nation, Worimi Nation, Wonnarua Nation and Eora Nation. We also pay respect to the wisdom of our Elders past and present.


Chromatic Festival and The University of Newcastle recognise that First Nations sovereignty was never ceded. This continent always was and always will be Aboriginal Land. 


We respect their cultural heritage, beliefs, and continuing relationship with the land, and recognise that they are the proud survivors of more than two hundred years of dispossession.
