Sample Agreement

Occupancy Licence (Creative Hub)

Arts Law has created a suite of documents  for setting up creative enterprise hubs in NSW by using empty space. For a description of how creative enterprise hubs work, read the Creative Enterprise Hubs: Overview.

This sample Occupancy Licence  is  modelled  on  the  successful  Renew  Newcastle  project in which an administrative body (such as a council or non-profit) connects artists, cultural projects and community groups with the owners of vacant buildings. It sets out the terms on which the Administering Body of the Creative Hub permits the artist or community project to occupy premises within the Creative Hub. It should be used in conjunction with the Participation Letter which is also available for FREE individual download below.


Where there is no administrative body, building owners and creative projects can still enter into short term arrangements for creative projects in pop-up spaces by using the Occupancy Licence (Pop-Up).
