The Space is a regional level youth facility designed to provide an indoor and outdoor space primarily for young people as well as the broader community. The facility will be utilised by young people to socialise in a safe and welcoming environment through structured and unstructured arts, cultural and sporting activities, and will provide access to a variety of services and programs.
Construction of The Space has involved conversion of the existing North Lakes Community Centre. The Federal Government contributed $3 million dollars towards the development of the youth facility. The re-development and construction of the building commenced in December 2012 and has recently been handed over to Council.
The Space will be an invaluable resource that will facilitate long term benefits to the young people of North Lakes and the greater Moreton Bay Region.
Key to the success of the facility is The Space itself. It will function to promote a sense of ownership and freedom of expression for various social and cultural activities, including performance and social spaces for music, dance, drama, life skills, recreation and social interaction.
