LiVS Incubator Project

The LiVS Incubator will provide participants with accessible, affordable and temporary central city space where individuals can realise their vision. While a project is live, LiVS can provide advice and practical support around funding and project management. Participants can also benefit from LiVS’s wide range of networks and many years of experience to assist in the project’s success! If a particular project does thrive within the temporary space, LiVS can then work with the participant to find an ongoing more permanent and suitable space for the project.

The LiVS Incubator is a space for pop up projects to run, anywhere from a minimum of 10 days up to a maximum of 3 months, where people can see their projects and ideas come to life; a testing ground for innovators, communities, entrepreneurs, creatives and educators.

We need projects that are ready to go. To ensure your project meets the criteria, you must be able to prove your project/idea:

Is ready to go and you are capable and determined to bring your project to life - we need to have confidence you are ready to run with your idea and make it fly!
- Works to engage with the city
- Can work in temporary space
- Will increase a sense of community
- Encourages public participation and interaction
- Involves a diverse range of people
- Brings something fresh and new that does not compete with the already existing offerings in the city

An insulated 20 foot container that has a shelving system you can change depending on your project. The space has lighting, power, a small storage space and a basic sink. The space is a blank canvas and each participant will need to supply their own equipment and furniture for the space.

The container cost $150 inc gst / week inc power & internet.
