Brilliant Idea for Creatives In Need of a Workspace

Society of Brilliant Ideas LogoThe Society of Brilliant Ideas is a new arts collective focussed on bringing together a whole bunch of creative disciplines; artisans, designers, crafty folk and the like.

The society has a few ideas up their sleeve and they aim to offer members the opportunity to network, share ideas and collaborate. The brilliant part is that everyone comes together under the same roof, either renting out a communal spot in a collective space or taking up residence in a more private studio.

There are plans to create a separate space that can be used for gatherings, events, workshops and exhibitions. The bonus is, it’s affordable and comes packaged with great minds that think alike, a-la your new neighbours.

The collective have secured amazing premises at 35 High St in Auckland central and the 6th floor is where all the action is going to take place. The venue is secure and the society will provide broadband, warm and light rooms to work in, opportunities to be involved in their publicity, art and craft projects and more.
