We take empty buildings and spaces and use them for community, creative or cultural use and stop buildings and space being wasted. We set up and run buildings and spaces ourselves or work in partnership with others. We also act as a broker between communities/enterprises and building owners and councils.
We are currently running Good Space in Commercial Union House, a home for charities, social action and creativity in the heart of Newcastle upon Tyne – a unique space blending social change, creativity and a collaborative way of working. Our first project, Broadacre House, ended in December 2017, and turned an empty office block into a thriving community space.
We work with active citizens, charities, community groups, social enterprises, community artists, freelancers and entrepreneurs plus landlords, building owners, developers and local authorities.
