It is hard to picture the ideal creative space, because artists and event planners are so different in the spaces that inspire them. Whether you’re planning a birthday party or fine art gallery showing, shooting a film or hosting a company mixer, having an appropriate creative space is essential to the event’s success.    

Peerspace, an app launched in 2014, is helping to connect event planners, visionaries and companies with personalized creative spaces. 

Through a website and mobile app, Peerspace links people looking for short-term spaces with hosts who have a space to share. Renting permanent space can be pricey, especially in metropolitan areas like New York where there is high demand.

Peerspace helps alleviate these difficulties by providing a streamlined method of communication.  Event planners can find a place to host gatherings. Production teams can find an off-site work area.  Hosts can bring guests to their space and make some money in the process.

Rather than exclusively offering expensive galleries or production studios, Peerspace provides access to all types of venues. For example, on the Peerspace Blog, one section is devoted to unusual repurposed spaces, offering a selection of locations ranging from a vintage trailer to an unoccupied airport hangar.

For people worried about security, Peerspace has taken measures to ensure that the interaction between hosts and guests remains positive. They offers automatic, free-of-charge liability protection guaranteed up to $1,000,000. That said, this coverage only applies to hosts who make arrangements using the Peerspace platform, so when setting up a host and guest arrangement it is essential to keep communication within Peerspace.

Peerspace does not stop at providing communication between hosts and guests. Guests can use to supply their events with additional amenities, including furniture rental, event staffing, catering and audiovisual equipment rental. 

The Peerspace interface is sleek and intuitive to use. Users select a location, and the type of event they are planning or workspace they desire, and are provided with an interactive map that shows spaces that match their criteria. 

Users can narrow their specifications by selecting specific price-points and the number of guests that will be attending. After selecting a space, users are directed to a page where they can view information about the space, venue rules, customer reviews and other necessary details.

Peerspace is taking a refreshing approach to venue listing, allowing creative people to explore numerous possibilities when selecting a unique space. For events as diverse as weddings, film-shoots, music video sets or gallery showings, Peerspace is a good place to start.
