Space for intimate workshops

Located in the hub of Brisbane’s creative district Fortitude Valley, Lightspace has become a destination for workshops and gatherings of all kinds.

We have a sound system, projectors and microphones in-venue, and can recommend specialist AV suppliers if you need additional equipment. 160 gorgeous bentwood chairs also come with the venue hire, perfect for a presentation in either the Bar Lounge or Main Space.  We also offer special rates for mid-week and daytime events.

We have recommenced onsite inspections with strict social distancing, however you can also have your own virtual tour of the venue here. Otherwise please contact us if you’d like to discuss a private virtual tour.
