About us

Creative Spaces is the go-to place for creatives in Australia to find and list spaces.

User-friendly and free of charge - we connect artists and creative practitioners with spaces all over the country. On top of this, we promote artists and their work, and provide an index of resources about the creative economy, including an expansive data platform. Find out more about the Data + Insights here.

Creative Spaces is your one-stop shop for finding and listing creative spaces in Australia. Launched in 2008 by the City of Melbourne's Creative Spaces program, in partnership with the RMIT Design Research Institute and Creative Victoria, we have become the go-to place for creatives to find the perfect space for their work. We’re constantly growing – with new listings being added to the site everyday.

We have a wide variety of spaces to choose from, including studios, workshops, galleries, and performance spaces. We know that these spaces are nothing without the people behind them, making inspiring works. Our ever-growing, vibrant community of creatives use our platform to collaborate and grow together.

In 2020, with our longstanding partner Creative Victoria, we launched a new expanded website, aiming to improve user experience and grow our creative community. Now, we’re making further improvements to the website thanks to our partners at The State Government of Victoria, through  the Melbourne City Revitalisation Fund (MCRF).

Creative Spaces currently manages a selection of spaces across the City of Melbourne:
