Although rewarding, the process of transforming a traditonal space into a creative space can sometimes be difficult. Creative Spaces presents case studies on spaces that have been transformed from their normal function into creative spaces. You will also find helpful information on public liability insurance, access to arts and creative organisations and information for owners and property consultants on the use of vacant or underutilised floor space.
About the Creative Spaces Program
Creative Spaces is program of the City of Melbourne Arts and Culture Branch. It partners with government, philanthropic, private organisations and educational institutions to provide a broad range of services around space for arts and cultural production.
The program underwrites cultural production by brokering, letting, subletting and developing afforable space for the creative industries. Where space is avaialble, Creative Spaces brokers it. Where space is in short supply, it creates it. Boyd School, River Studios and Boyd Heritage are the first three landmark developments of the program.
City of Sydney is the first interstate council to licence the website, giving locals greater access to affordable creative spaces.
