Renew Australia is a national social enterprise designed to catalyse community renewal, economic development, the arts and creative industries across Australia.

We work with local communities to catalyse creative industries and improve main streets and central business districts by leveraging underutilised spaces and transforming them into creative hubs.

projects and participants around Australia

Renewing spaces

We work with communities and property owners to take otherwise empty shops, offices, commercial and public buildings and make them available to incubate short term use by artists, creative projects and community initiatives.

The Renew project allowed me to not only get back into the workforce whilst raising my kids but also enabled me to pursue a dream I thought was out of my reach!
