Contribute Your Space

We are seeking expressions of interest from property owners who have empty spaces to lease or lend to a creative for the duration of the festival. There are two types of spaces for this event:

Sponsored spaces are curated by the Director and Special Events Coordinator of Umbrella Studio. These spaces will form the backbone of the festival’s programming, and creatives are expected to man their pop-ups 3-7pm on weeknights and 5-9pm on weekends. Space partners will receive a $500 (exGST) gratuity for each space they allow the use of for the festival. Owners of multiple spaces are encouraged to consider waiving the gratuity a space, which can then be used as a Community Space.

Community spaces are open to all creatives and organisations. These spaces aim to support and nurture local arts organizations and broaden the reach of the festival through satellite events and pop-ups. These spaces will be provided for free through the generosity of Space Partners. Participating Community Space organizations will have their own third party insurance.

Please note: If Space partners are a part of a business or group which would like to promote their business more prominently, Umbrella is happy to discuss alternative arrangements. Umbrella would also like to remind Space Partners that any donations are tax deductible.

Sponsored space creatives are covered by Umbrella’s existing public liability insurance. Creatives requesting a community space are required to obtain their own public liability insurance.
