Growing Brisbane's maker economy
Brisbane City Council aims to inspire entrepreneurship at the local community level to elevate the independent, artisan and bespoke to grow Brisbane’s maker economy. Find out about the opportunities for support to grow a maker-micro-business and connect with other maker businesses.
Maker Entrepreneurship Program
Brisbane City Council is running a Maker Entrepreneurship Program in 2022 to provide fully subsidised micro-business training to creative makers looking to grow and ensure the sustainability of their online businesses.
A maker is someone who creates a tangible item either by design or fabrication. For example, artists, sewers, printers, potters, metalsmiths, jewellers, woodworkers, designers and more. This program aims to equip makers with the skills, tools and resources to build a community and maintain a creative business.
The Maker Entrepreneurship Program has been running since 2020, and there have been 24 program graduates to date.
