Program: Aug to Nov 2019

We’re stoked to be launching our first ever program. Our program is dynamic and developing so new things will be added over the coming weeks. Join our e-news for direct updates to your inbox.

Our program has some facilitated things, some drop-in things and some room for additional self-organised things *you* want to offer. We are keeping our ticketed events, drop-ins, workshops and other activities deliberately small to foster real connections and tailored experiences.

Our space is also available for hire for workshops, meetings, talks, think-tanks, study and desk-work. We have workshop/meeting space suitable for 5-10 people and we have 4 desks available. More info about hire here.
