The building at 23 Ebley Street, Bondi Junction was constructed in the 1920's when it was the local fruit shop. It then became a local taxi business for many years. Since Valentine's Day 1965 it was a workshop for specialist surgical equipment, and in 2015 it became Superlocalstudio.
OUR VISION: WHY WE EXIST
Superlocalstudio is a creative incubator and an independent space that has been designed to enable the creation of thoughtful practices. We identify and nurture local talent and provide a space for it to flourish. We support and encourage innovation, creativity, enterprise culture and thoughtful approaches in the areas of art, design, environment, and cultural practices that enable projects creating long-term broad reaching value.
Superlocalstudio supports arts, cultural, environmental and humanitarian organisations. Diversity and inclusion are considered in all projects and practices. We work towards 50/50 gender diversity and encourage cultural diversity.
We choose to support local and independent businesses and choose low environmental impact materials wherever possible.
At Superlocalstudio we are conscious of what we create and our impact on the environment. Our approach is embedded in every process we follow. We strive to have minimal environmental impact and invest in native Tasmania forests with Climate Friendly when necessary to offset emissions.
