Meet The Roosters

The Roost offers a base for creatives to develop from graduates to professionals, to start and run businesses and to encourage cool things happen.

We’re the proud home of graphic designers, illustrators, photographers, writers, artists, architects and more. 

We’re not about being in competition; rather we’re committed to supporting the energy and inspiration of our local creative industry, providing avenues for professional development and supporting each other’s endeavours.


The Roost is a not-for-profit organisation. This allows us to put our members first and keep our prices low – we’re the most affordable co-working space in Newcastle that boasts some of the best benefits.  

Small business focused

From business mentoring and community support to a dedicated workspace, The Roost is a great place to start and grow a business. 

Other membership offerings

The Roost supports creatives in many ways, such as member-led workshops in our space and an arts market stall.
