Benefits of Interim Activity

Interim (or transitional) activities breathe new life into vacant spaces. The advantages of such undertakings include:

  • Enhanced visual appeal that attracts tourism and business investments, boosting the local economy.
  • Activities that foster well-being, community engagement, resilience, and a strong sense of identity.
  • An environment that encourages cultural events, inspires other creative projects and provides a testing ground for innovative ideas.
  • Reduction in crime rates and environmental improvement.
  • Opportunities for positive marketing, audience building, networking, and public image enhancement.
