The Creative Spaces Network aims to increase the capacity of creative spaces to profile and promote what they do.
Creative spaces are organisations and places where people can make art, or participate in artistic activities such as theatre, dance, circus, music, film and creative writing. They provide space, resources and assistance in ways that will lead to self-expression, empowerment and self-development.
There are many creative spaces in communities throughout New Zealand. Some encourage an informal, drop-in approach while others prefer a structured approach, with programmes and workshops in writing, visual and performing arts. Read more about the history of creative spaces
Creative spaces are dynamic places, using a range of approaches to achieve similar outcomes. Read more about these approaches
