Hotel Hotel is open. You'll love the 68 rooms that range from cosy hideouts to sprawling suites, furnished sparingly but thoughtfully with new, recycled and vintage pieces. No two rooms are alike, providing an individualized hotel experience for every guest. On three floors of the Japanese inspired Nishi building, artists and designers from Australia and abroad took a blank canvas and created a new hotel typology where guests are seamlessly integrated into a new urban hub.

Sophisticated Simple Living
Nishi is Australia’s most radically sustainable mixed-use building and apartment complex and represents the third and final stage of the NewActon precinct and responds to our more communal, more cosmopolitan and more world-wise ways of being. Nishi is the new beacon for more responsible, sustainable living in Canberra because it brings together the notions of community and environmental positivism in the one place.Read more

Make Your Move
NewActon South is the striking centrepiece of NewActon precinct; a sensuous glass, steel and concrete curvilinear apartment tower that transcends the everyday through its quality of thought, exacting craftsmanship, distinctive materiality and ever-present integration of contemporary art.Read more

Saturday March 15Art, Not Apart IV—
The festival without boundaries will go deeper into the light and dark sides of the arts. Art, Not Apart brings together a wide spectrum of artists from all backgrounds. Musicians, poets, painters, sculptors, dancers, filmmakers, street artists, weavers and all walks of life gather in beautiful spaces to talk and wander.
Share lunch, have a dance, ask about an artwork or lounge beside a stage of unique and sublime performers. It's a day in the laneways, courtyard and gardens of NewActon, and then a more sinister night on the street and basement of Nishi.
Art, Not Apart is currently being revised to expand into new spaces with new artists. If you're interested in being involved, please email chloe(at)newacton.com.au.
Details and a video of the 2013 festival are here. Free, open to everyone. Saturday afternoon, plus a performance-art-after-party, March 15, 2014
