Caloundra Transit Centre EOI

Type of space: Multi-use Space

    Creative Spaces in collaboration with Sunshine Coast Council and Sunshine Coast Creative Alliance are transforming the old Caloundra Transit Centre lounge into a creative space for artist studios, workshop and exhibition space. 

    Creative Spaces is looking for up to four contemporary creative practitioners to anchor the space and a mix of leading creative organisations to position the space as a creative and experimental meeting point for the Southern part of the Sunshine Coast. 

    The space can accommodate a broad range of practises including digital and visual arts, photography, making, design. We are looking for low impact, agile practices that do not require significant infrastructure. Due to the open plan nature of the building, some practices that create fumes such as spray painting are not suitable.

    These micro-tennancies will be available at a reduced rate, assessed by individual needs including space required (in sqm) and practice type.
