The Paint Factory

The Paint Factory is a vibrant creative precinct in Yeronga, in Brisbane’s western suburbs. It is located at the former Taubmans paint factory, which closed in 2015. The site is now earmarked for development into Australia’s first integrated arts village. 

The owners and developers of the site engaged Bespoken in 2019 to assist with media management, before broadening the remit to include community and stakeholder engagement.

This has encompassed a significant body of work, from workshop facilitation with artists and key stakeholders to liaising with media, creating content for social, digital and online, and organising and hosting community events to drive authentic community engagement around the site’s future plans. 

The feedback curated from these myriad activities helped the team shape its vision for a mixed-use precinct where art stakeholders and aficionados could work, live and play.

Bespoken continues to work with the owner and development team on its development application with the Brisbane City Council, maintaining the project’s profile and goodwill among the artistic and local communities and working proactively to communicate with all stakeholders.

The Outcome

Through its expertise in community and stakeholder engagement and relationship building, plus an unparalleled understanding of the modern media landscape, Bespoken has helped the owners and developers position The Paint Factory as an appealing and much-desired drawcard for Yeronga and a destination that will firmly put Brisbane on the creative map.
