We're located in Founders Park, minutes from the centre of Nelson.  Set within character buildings and displays of Nelson's heritage, the park hosts a wide range of artists and creative businesses.  You'll find us in the Nelson Mail Building working alongside a public display that showcases the rich history of the newspaper and publishing industry in Nelson.
