About this space

The main meeting space is an irregular shape with a cupola roof, which has won architectural awards. The ambiance of the space inspires creativity and contemplation. The space is very flexible, from completely open through to lecture style or working tables. There is good to excellent WiFi, high air turnover and a balcony with sliding doors.
If desired, the kitchen/meals are can be added by hiring the entire top floor.
Alternatively there are many excellent cafes and restaurants in the area. Some of these will cater. Meals can also be served in the courtyard at a nominal extra charge.
Accessibility is excellent. The space is wheelchair and walker accessible, and the front door can be opened with a phone app, so keys can be issued to multiple leaders and participants. There will be a small charge for more than four keys.

About Victorian Quaker Centre

The Victorian Quaker Centre is a two story renovated office building in West Melbourne. The lower story has a library and a number of small meeting spaces. The upper story comprises an open meeting room that seats about fifty (eighty square metres), a small multipurpose room mainly used by teenagers, a dining area with self service tea and coffee facilities, and a kitchen with induction cooker, microwave, large fridge and dishwasher. There is a North facing balcony off the meeting room.
We are primarily interested in hiring out the entire upper floor on weekdays and Saturdays. There is a potential for regular hires, such as every Thursday or every second Saturday.
The building has won a number of architectural awards.
Facilities include reverse cycle air conditioning with high fresh air turnover (Passivhaus standard), NBN backed WiFi, a large screen TV with ethernet connection, whiteboard and folding tables which allow the room to be set up in many different formats. Basic coffee, tea, sugar and long life milk are included.
Street parking is generally available, and the Centre is within walking distance of Victoria Market. It was chosen to be near public transport with the 57, 58 and 59 trams close by and Flagstaff station a short walk away through the Flagstaff Gardens.
