Footscray VIC

May - July 2017 


In June and July 2017, Creative Suburbs worked with Inspire9 (the original co-working community in Melbourne) to help launch its new co-working community at the iconic Dream Factory building in Footscray (the site of the old Lonely Planet building). 

A rapidly growing area, this Activation served as an opportunity to connect many community groups, local businesses, social enterprises of the area that are doing great things.

We designed and built a temporary warehouse space (Space9) with the addition of street art, which was available for use by the public, becoming a community hub over the period of the Activation. With Inspire9, we also designed 4 weeks’ worth of free event programming (focused on start up culture and health x wellbeing) for the Inner West Community, culminating in a fun family friendly official launch day for the Dream Factory showcasing many amazing tech start ups, local businesses, social enterprises, food trucks, live music and coffee!
