Create, Innovate Gosford City: from an idea to opening up shop

GBID Logo

Create, Innovate Gosford City set up in 2010 to rejuvenate Gosford's central business district. It acts as intermediary between property owners of vacant shops and creative practitioners seeking to occupy the space at low or no rent in order to start up a new enterprise.

This case study of their first year was written for people starting up an empty space project in their community - to assist with understanding the development process and resourcing required - by Michelle Brooks, from the University of Technology, Sydney, in November 2010.

The first Create, Innovate shop, Honeydew Gallery, opened in April 2011.
