ACMI X Co-working

A home for Melbourne’s creative practitioners.

ACMI X in Southbank is a co-working community made up of over 60 creative practitioners, start-ups and businesses working with creative technology working across film, TV, videogames and art. 

We foster a creative culture that champions collaboration, innovation and sustainability.

By providing a place and a community that enables discovery, learning and growth for individuals and businesses alike, creative fusions and cross-disciplinary partnerships emerge from the energy and collaboration between co-workers and ACMI’s own creative employees at ACMI X.

Please be advised that the ACMI X co-working space is currently closed due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Designed by award-winning architects Six Degrees, ACMI X is a 2,000 square metre state-of-the-art office space in the heart of Melbourne’s arts precinct and a first for an Australian museum.
