Life in Vacant Spaces (LiVS) manage vacant spaces with property owners for temporary creative and entrepreneurial projects.
Property owners in the central city and suburban centres can support temporary use of vacant land or buildings for short to medium term projects.
Life in Vacant Spaces (LiVS)(external link) makes the process easy. They hold standard agreements for both site owners and site users and can match projects to sites.
If you're an artist, entrepreneur, craftsperson, community group or anyone with an idea for a temporary project, LiVS can help broker the vacant space to launch it.
They've brokered gardens and green labs, artworks and cookery schools, bike workshop, green woodworking workshop, pop up shops, markets and more.
LiVS is open to all ideas so long as you have the determination to take the project from bright idea to delivery.
Projects to activate vacant spaces may be eligible for Council's Enliven Places Projects Fund.
