About us

The Creative Spaces website is the leader in creative space listings across Australia.

Uniquely created and exclusive for creative industries, it is entirely user-driven and free to use.

Creative Spaces connects artists and creative practitioners with spaces, promotes artists and their work, and provides an index of live and virtual events.

The website is an initiative of the City of Melbourne’s Creative Spaces program. It was first launched in 2008 in partnership with the RMIT Design Research Institute and Creative Victoria. Since then, the website has built an enormous rapport within the creative community as the central location for listing and searching for creative spaces. In 2020, a highly improved and expanded website was launched with longstanding partner Creative Victoria.

Special thanks to photographer Ren Pidgeon and our featured artists who have provided a bounty of talent and energy throughout this website. Find out more about our featured artists on their profile pages:
