Urban Village: Community and History Link at NAS

Urban Village: Community and History Link at NAS

Article by Queenie Colquhoun.

The Old Warden’s cottage on Burton Street opposite NAS was rented by art students in the past. Now, four NAS students are reprising that tradition, as Queenie Colquhoun reports.

Urban Village spoke with residents Brodie Cullen, Oliver Scherer, Oscar Sulich and Nima Ahmadian, one ex NAS student and three current students approaching their graduation.

Brodie says: “As soon as we met the real estate agent and he told us that this was the Warden’s cottage, we were keen. It wasn’t until we lived here for a few months that people told us that old art students used to live here. We found all these old sculptures in the backyard while we were cleaning it!”

The housemates have found their creativity flourishing in their home environment.

You can see Nima’s work at The Postgrad Show 2021 from 22–30 Jan, and Brodie and Oliver’s work at The Grad Show 2021 from 11–20 Feb.
