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 Broadacre 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. Broadacre House is a meanwhile project, turning an empty office into a thriving community space, which will finish in December 2017.
We work with active citizens, charities, community groups, social enterprises, community artists, freelancers and entrepreneurs plus landlords, building owners, developers and local authorities.
