Donkey Wheel House
donkey wheel house, located near Southern Cross Station in Melbourne's CBD, is a community of change-makers based in a substantial, beautiful, heritage property of around 3,000 sqm set over 4 floors plus basement.
At donkey wheel house we are creating a dynamic, collaborative space for social impact which draws together a community of socially aligned enterprises.
Donkey Wheel House is exploring ways in which it can build and contribute to the growth of Melbourne's social capital by hosting, supporting and/or partnering with existing community organisations and/or initiatives.
The building, known as donkey wheel house (dwh) since 2008, was originally built in 1891 as the headquarters of the Tramways & Omnibus Company who ran the cable cars, & later the tram network in Melbourne until the late 1970's.
The current vision of donkey wheel house (dwh) is to house a growing, thriving community of socially aligned organisations that are seeking to address some of society's biggest social challenges in innovative, entrepreneurial, financially sustainable & collaborative ways.
The building - donkey wheel house (dwh) - is the physical space in which the donkey wheel mantra of 'think different. act different. make a different difference' comes to life.
