Friends of The Shared

The Shared is an eclectic sanctuary for Sunshine Coast creatives. Established as the new home of the Sunshine Coast School of Photography in early 2012, The Shared has since transformed into a home-away-from-home for many artists and locals.


Within our walls you will find a collection of antiques and treasures, expertly brewed coffee, delicious vegetarian sweets plus a Music and Events calendar to rock your socks!


Our stage plays host to a hot pot of musical flavours with some of the biggest homegrown acts playing alongside undiscovered local talent. No where else on the coast can you groove to your fav music all while kicking back in a comfy lounge and soaking in the creative buzz.


Follow us on Facebook to keep up to date with what's happening.
