Communify aims to strengthen the community’s capacity by supporting all services and programs that respond to the diverse needs and interests of people living in the inner city communities of Brisbane.

If the hiring costs of our community spaces are a barrier to implementing your program, please contact Pam on (07) 3510 2700 or email: .

You are welcome to serve cold drinks, tea, coffee and food in all of our community spaces.

The ability to have a function with BYO or to sell alcohol is available at Woolloongabba Substation and SPACE at Kenmore ONLY; however conditions do apply. Please contact the Community Spaces team to discuss further.

All other venues are STRICTLY NO BYO alcohol. If you wish to have alcohol at our community spaces you are welcome to use a licensed caterer of your choice. If you have your own caterer providing a bar, their licence will need to be viewed before making your booking.

For catering services we recommend:

  • Cuisine on Cue – We are renowned for our consistency in unsurpassed customer service and the attention to detail we bring to every event, regardless of the size, catering style or budget.

You must provide your own Public Liability Insurance to book a venue.

Public Liability Insurance protects the hirer against claims of personal injury or property damage that a third party suffers (or claims to have suffered) as a result of any  business or personal  activities at our community spaces.

As a hirer you must have public liability insurance for at least $10,000,000 whilst hiring a Communify Space. You must produce documentation of the insurance to Communify at the time of registration. If you fail or refuse to arrange Public Liability Insurance then Communify may immediately terminate your booking. You must ensure that your Public Liability Insurance is kept up to date and continue to send Communify updated renewals if you are a regular hirer.

The insurance must be under the name of the person or company booking the venue. If you are  booking as part of an organisation , the insurance must be in the name of that organisation. If you are booking as an individual, the insurance must be in your name.

Please contact an insurance provider or broker to arrange your Public Liability Insurance &/or assist with any questions you have.

The following list provides web links for various insurance providers:
