Meeting Mindfully with Byron Spaces

Meet, Relate, and Create at Byron Spaces

Byron Shire is known for many things - magical natural beauty, a burgeoning wellness industry and an active community spirit. Established Byron businesses are known for their genuine values regarding sustainability, inclusion and care for the less fortunate. This has underpinned the region for decades and is one of the reasons people flock here in droves. It’s just full of mindful people.

The movement of local businesses toward Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has had an impact in several areas. Many companies have taken steps to improve the environmental sustainability of their operations through measures such as installing renewable energy sources, purchasing carbon offsets, rejecting the convenience of single-use plastics and choosing recycled and repurposed. In managing supply chains, efforts have also been taken to eliminate reliance on unethical labour practices, such as child labour and slavery.

More philanthropy in businesses

Although CSR programs have generally been most common among large corporations, small businesses also participate in CSR through smaller-scale programs such as donating to local charities and sponsoring local events.

“The Byron Community Centre and Theatre is a first stop for many local businesses keen to conduct mindful meetings and workshops, not to mention partying with purpose!” says Byron Spaces Manager, Sam Taylor. “In choosing to hold their meetings with Byron Spaces, individuals and businesses directly fund vital homeless services at Fletcher Street Cottage and other community and welfare programs.”

After the recent years of fire, floods and the pandemic, the strain on homeless services in particular, is at breaking point. The Byron Community Centre, like many other community organisations in the area, have reported a surge in support for new Byron Spaces bookings of their four meeting rooms and theatre for conscious conferencing and meetings, especially from the IT, health, education, construction and creative sectors.

Choose Byron Bay Community Centre for your next event

“Interestingly many businesses in Byron still don’t realise the direct flow of financial support they provide by booking at the Byron Community Centre,” says Sam. “Rather they choose Byron Spaces due to the central location, ample parking and alternative transport options, flexible uses, integrated AV and reasonable venue hire rates. Byron Spaces offers meeting rooms, co-working spaces (office by the hour and longer term office hire), conference (theatre) with breakouts and, of course, the newly revamped Verandah for networking events and private parties. Even profits from the bar go to Fletcher Street Cottage. Now that’s a reason to celebrate!”

More recently there has been a trend for big business events from the major cities to consider how their events can benefit disaster-impacted communities such as the Byron Shire with events by major global companies. In 2022, Byron Spaces was booked for TEDx Byron Bay Women and Meta Boost. Let’s look forward to more of the same industry and private support whilst the vulnerable are still reeling from recent life-changing circumstances. 

Byron Spaces presents multifunctional event spaces right in the heart of Byron that give back to community.
