Introducing COMMUNE


Grey, soulless conference centres and windowless meeting rooms aren’t where the world gets re-invented.

The 2018 Purpose conference will play out at the magnificent COMMUNE. It’s an absolutely stunning venue, located in an old Porter’s paint warehouse.

It’s a marvellous venue that includes:

  • Multiple rustic warehouse spaces
  • Bucket loads of natural light and airy spaces
  • An outdoor laneway for our block party!
  • Flexible spaces that will accommodate our mix of plenary sessions and intimate workshops
  • An innovation hub – COMMUNE was designed to foster connections, collaboration and creativity
  • A socially conscious mindset – COMMUNE have kindly partnered with us to support the event and the mission of Purpose
