7 creative spaces to inspire in Brisbane

The beauty and brutality of creativity and finding inspiration is that where we work, rehearse, or perform has an undeniable influence on our creative output.

So, an online community like Creative Spaces that helps creatives find inspiring spaces in Brisbane (and around Australia) is worth its weight in gold for opening your eyes to some seriously cool and vibrant venues.

What is Creative Spaces?

Creative Spaces is a free online community connecting Australian creatives with spaces. From photo studios to dance studios and recording spaces to blank canvas substations, there is a space to let your creativity soar. The site is an initiative of the City of Melbourne and is supported by Brisbane City Council.

How to use Creative Spaces

Creative Spaces is a community website where you can search for spaces in your local area.

Much like other search sites, you can search for spaces by location along with price, size, suitability, or hire duration. It is free to search and easy to sign up.
