Financial donations to SYN are tax deductible, and are very much appreciated. From the current crop of SYNners, and on behalf of future generations, thank you.

Moving Up & Moving Out

SYN is a special place. It is the heart and hub of young media makers across Melbourne and the country. However, SYN’s outgrown its current space, and needs your help to Move Up and Move Out for its next generation of SYNners.

With the help of two major spaces partners, RMIT University and Gandel Philanthropy, SYN is moving to a schmick, totally disability accessible co-working space with access to more audio and video studios, training spaces and a new office. We’ll be right on Swanston Street, in the heart of the Melbourne CBD, and more accessible to young people from all backgrounds and abilities than ever before.

Through funding partnerships and fundraising to date, SYN has secured almost all of the $1.5 million required for our move. So now we’re asking YOU, our volunteers and alumni, to get us over the line with just another $10,000.

Donate via https://www.givenow.com.au/SYNmoves before October 31st.
