Impactful change through artful participation
WHO WE ARE
Here at Occupied Spaces, we create unforgettable experiences that take you on a journey.
We are an independent production company based in Meanjin, Brisbane, making impactful site-specific experiences in an artful way. Our unique approach to creativity encompasses multi-arts practice and community engagement, making high-quality experiences that empower locals to create meaningfully alongside professional artists. The outcome is participatory, play-based works that celebrate accessibility, inclusion, and storytelling.
WHAT WE DO
We cultivate connection through vibrant and intimate community projects. It is important that we respect those who have occupied the space before us, in every context within which we operate. We value authentic relationships, understand the importance of local stories, and champion exceptional creatives to develop and create work on their home turf. We listen. We facilitate. We support.
At Occupied Spaces, the foundation of our work is in creating socially impactful experiences. We work in partnership with local individuals and organisations to engage, amplify, support, and realise their goals. Our aim is to create tailored, meaningful and enriching experiences for the social, professional and economical benefit of the community. Each project is beautifully unique.
At the heart of each Occupied Spaces project is an invitation for participation, expansion, and adventure. We use interactive community-driven performance, audio, and visual art to engage with audience members and allow for a free exchange of ideas. We aim to inspire and create new perspectives, challenging people’s understanding of the norm while delving into the new and now.
“Every person has an inborn worth and can contribute meaningfully to the human community.”
