Community Space

Showcase your organisation and help us highlight how the public can become more involved in their community through leisure, learning and volunteering.

What is the Community Space at Westfield Knox

The Community Space at Westfield Knox City Shopping Centre has been providing a venue for community groups to showcase what they do best to members of the public since 2014.

The aim of the Community Space is to celebrate community, volunteering and learning in the Knox community. There is no cost but you must book.

The space has relocated to Level 1 three doors down from Dusk in the old Suncorp bank building.

Westfield kindly donated the wonderful larger space to continue our work while renovations take place.

About the Community Space at Westfield Knox

There are over 800 community groups in the City of Knox all contributing to the richness of community life in a variety of ways. They provide services such as, early childhood education and care, Aged care, Disability support, Animal welfare and education, conservation and the environment, Counselling and support, Education and learning (including libraries), Festivals and the arts, Legal services, Religious groups, Sport, leisure and recreation clubs, Youth services, Health services, Media (including community newspapers, magazines, radio and television) and much more.

All these organisations rely on volunteer support and membership to remain viable. Westfield Knox has provided the Community Space to contribute to the ability of these clubs and organizations to promote themselves to potential members and clients as well as recruit valuable volunteers.

It also allows us to highlight how the public can become more involved in their community.
