Our main purpose is to support and sustain the arts, in order to make research and creation more accessible to all artists.

We offer different opportunities that are accessible to all, according to the individuals professional background and experience.

UNITY SPACE AIR MELBOURNE
Unity Space is proud to present its Artists in Residency program, that will be taking place in different countries/cities/spaces across the world. Legakis is collaborating closely with Abbotsford Convent in their beautiful studios in the heart of Abbotsford. The mission and vision is to nurture and support local and international artists to find a new voice of expression.
Unity Space – Artists in Residency Melbourne – was inspired by practicing and integrating a yoga and chi gong philosophy within dance. The main intention for this residency that Legakis wishes to trigger the artists with, is the stimulation the artists can receive by being in a serene and harmonious space. This tranquil space will be created through the practice of yoga, meditation and receiving the healing therapeutic modalities that Abbotsford Convent offers.
We offer accommodation for up to four artists, mentoring, studio space and more.
