I had a great evening at the CIDA Creative Business Club recently – more on that soon, but this is a brief heads up about one of the organisations represented at the event. The Creative Space Agency is one of those ideas that seem obvious when you hear about it – they act as matchmakers between creative professionals looking for space and landlords looking to rent their property.
So if you’re a London-based creative or entrepreneur looking for a studio, meeting room, event or exhibition space, you can search the Space Directory for a suitably atmospheric space. And if you’re a landlord with the kind of property that would appeal to creative types, you can add your space to the directory, for short- or long-term hire.
I’ve not used the service yet but the Space Directory will be one of the first places I look when I need a coaching or training space in a particular area. Hopefully they can come up with something more atmospheric than the cubicles on offer at most corporate meeting space providers.
I’ve written before about creative environments, and how it’s often not the space per se but a change of environment that shifts the creative gears and triggers inspiration (if an environment can be said to change gears) – so the Creative Space Agency looks like a great source of new environments to stimulate your creativity. Cool name too.
Edit: Antonio wants a scheme like this in Birmingham – is there one in your city you would recommend? If so, leave a comment with a link.
