The Empty Spaces Project Fills Your Vacancies

According to recent numbers, vacancies are on the rise again. If your shopping center has a space that needs filling, Empty Spaces might be just what you need.

The Empty Spaces Project is funded by Arts NSW (New South Wales, Australia). It seeks to unite retail landlords with temporary art exhibitions, workshops and projects that need good homes. The organization has put together case studies and toolkits to make the process easier. It’s also put legal minds to work to ensure that participating shopping centers will not find themselves in any difficult legal or financial situations due to their participation in the program.

Empty Spaces also highlights arts organizations across Australia that do similar work, so if you aren’t in NSW you can find other options on the website. And if you’re not in Australia, it might be worth looking into local arts groups that do the same, or working with a local arts organization to start a similar project. Filling a vacancy with an art installation while looking for paying tenants can benefit your mall, your shoppers and your community, so consider giving it a shot.
