At Communify, our aim is to enhance the capacity of the community by providing support for a wide range of programs and services that cater to the unique needs and interests of residents in Brisbane’s inner city neighborhoods.

We understand that the hiring fees for our community spaces may pose a challenge to implementing your program. Therefore, we encourage you to get in touch with Pam at (07) 3510 2700 or via email if you require assistance in this regard. We are always willing to work with you to find solutions that benefit the community.

Our community spaces are great for hosting events and serving refreshments, including cold drinks, tea, coffee, and food. However, it’s important to note that BYO alcohol is strictly prohibited in all our venues except Woolloongabba Substation and SPACE at Kenmore. Even for these venues, certain conditions apply, and we recommend contacting our Community Spaces team for more information.

If you plan to have alcohol at your event, you must use a licensed caterer. If you have a caterer that is providing a bar, their license will need to be verified before making your booking.

For your convenience, we recommend the catering services of Cuisine on Cue or Dux Gutz Catering.

To ensure the safety and protection of all parties involved, it is required that hirers have their own Public Liability Insurance when booking a venue at Communify. This insurance covers any claims of personal injury or property damage caused by any business or personal activities during your time at our community spaces.

When booking a venue with us, hirers are required to have Public Liability Insurance for at least $10,000,000, and provide documentation of this insurance to Communify at the time of registration. Failure to comply with this requirement may result in the immediate termination of your booking.

It is important that hirers keep their Public Liability Insurance up to date and provide Communify with updated renewals if they are regular hirers. The insurance must be under the name of the person or company booking the venue, or if booking as part of an organization, the insurance must be in the name of that organization.

If you are unsure about how to obtain Public Liability Insurance, we recommend that you contact an insurance provider or broker.

Communify does not offer AV equipment for hire at our community spaces. While you are welcome to bring your own equipment, we are unable to provide any technical assistance.

If you require AV equipment for your event, we recommend contacting Queensland Hire. Established in 1980, Queensland Hire offers a comprehensive range of hire items, including marquee tents, tables, chairs, linen, and catering equipment. They also provide display wall installations for exhibitions and trade shows, as well as equipment for weddings, festivals, outdoor events, and corporate functions.

For more information about their equipment and services, please visit their website.

Communify strives to maintain clean and well-presented venues for our valued hirers. We kindly request that you follow the below checklist when concluding your booking to ensure the venue is left in a clean and tidy state. Please ensure that adequate time is allocated for the final clean-up in your booking schedule.

  • All tables and chairs should be returned to their original position and stacked neatly.
  • Tables and benches must be wiped clean and free of debris.
  • All rubbish bins should be emptied into the Brisbane City Council bins provided outside the venues, and relined with the bin liners located at the bottom of the bin.
  • If a dishwasher is present, please ensure it is turned on and all dishes are cleaned and put away.
  • The venue floors should be clean and free of any spills, and mopped if necessary.
  • Please check and wipe benches in the toilets, leaving them in a tidy state.
  • Please ensure all decorations and equipment brought in for the event is removed from the premises.
  • All windows and doors should be securely closed and locked.
  • Lastly, please turn off all lights, fans, and air-conditioning before leaving the venue.

Basic cleaning products, dishwashing tablets, dish cloths, bin liners, broom, mop, and bucket are provided. Please feel free to notify us via email if any cleaning supplies are running low.

Please be aware that a cleaning bill may be forwarded to you if the venue is left in an unsatisfactory state.
