About us

The Makers x Traders of Newcastle is an independent business group working together to connect you with the vibrant, creative community of this City.

We’re a collective of like-minded businesses  located in the inner-city of Newcastle that share a commitment to community engagement, sustainable supply practices and the fostering of creative communities.

Established in May 2019, we’re a newly formed not-for-profit organisation. By pooling our energies, we seek to access funding and partnerships, and work on projects that are beyond us as individual businesses. We are proud to be part of a city we believe has an incredibly creative DNA and we’re excited to share some of these stories with the world.
