Creative Industries Precinct

See creative innovation as it happens

The Creative Industries Precinct's newest buildings, completed in an $80 million expansion in 2016, have been designed to shine a light on the creative process. The precinct houses the Creative Industries Faculty in purpose-built teaching and learning spaces, including performance spaces, visual art galleries and music studios, designed to make the creative process more visible, with windows and viewing panels allowing anyone to watch the work as it happens.

Around the studio spaces there are open areas where students can learn and practise together. The vibrant creative environment helps to foster connections and collaborations between students, staff, researchers and commercial venutures working in different disciplines, enabling the development of new ideas, creative processes and techniques.

Incorporating Queensland's heritage

The precinct is located on the heritage-listed Gona Army Barracks site. Seven former barracks buildings have been refurbished and repurposed, including the World-War-I-era infantry drill hall, which is the oldest building on the site. We've retained the buildings' original materials and features wherever possible.
