Turning empty spaces into happy places

Activating Spaces

In Australia, we activate spaces, engage and strengthen community cohesion and up-skill young people with hands-on experience within a number of active social enterprises, events and programs.

Co-Ground has previously designed and managed site activations in Collingwood, Brunswick and Prahran through collaborations with Pace Development Group, Peregrine Projects, TwoSpace and a number of local councils.

Local meets global

We create an authentic local offering and invite community members to get involved. 

The best part, all local initiatives have supported our global projects – generating funding to improve access to education, income and fresh water.
