Making Space for Culture

Image: Candice Seplow

The Town of Victoria Park is partnering with the Cities of Perth, South Perth and Vincent to investigate opportunities to support the development of creative maker spaces across the Perth inner city.

A creative maker space is a space or place (artist studio, workshop etc) where groups or individual creatives come together to practice and share space, equipment, skills and ideas, from hobbyists to professionals and everything in between.

The study will quantify demand and specific needs, investigate potential locations and research alternative funding and management models.

The study delivers on Strategic Action 2.1 from the Town’s Arts and Culture Plan 2020 which identified a need for local affordable arts and creative spaces.

The study is funded by the Town’s COVID-19 Recovery Strategy, recognising the social, cultural, employment and economic benefits and value of community spaces for creativity and learning.

What's happening now?

Stage 1 of the project involves a survey seeking to understand the detailed needs of creatives. So if you consider yourself a creative then take the survey and tell us what your needs are and what would attract you to maker spaces in the Town. Please share the survey if you know other creatives in your network.

Filling out the survey puts you in the draw to win one of two $500 cash prizes. Survey closes 5pm 23 July 2021.
