Creating Spaces Conference brought together regional-based community leaders from across Australia who are passionate about renewal and creativity, and interested in reactivating spaces within their own communities.

Attendees sat with people who have imagined, executed, and inspired others with their space activation projects, such as Renew Newcastle, Gap Filler (Christchurch, NZ) and Empty Shops Network (UK) and learned of the impact of creative activationof empty spaces in previously struggling town centres. They were introduced to essential DIY tools and strategies to build creative and engaging spaces and town centre activation. Most importantly they left with inspiration and foundation knowledgeto initiate and build similar projects in their own community.

Creating Spaces Conference is only possible due to the support of the Australian Government’s Department of Regional Australia, Local Government, Art and Sport.
