The Creative Space Agency

Creative Space Agency
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.


  1. Wow! What a great idea – Birmingham needs something like this.


  2. I think there are a lot of places that could use it – I’ll ask if anyone knows something similar in their own city.

  3. I haven’t heard of anything like this before, so I’m not aware of such a service here in Edinburgh.

    Great idea though.

  4. Maybe a business opportunity for someone…

  5. I have a 2000ft creative space that we are currently not using and I feel it may make an excellent creative meeting/inspiration space for day hire/meetings/brainstorms etc… it’s in Covent Garden, so pretty brilliant location too – but how do I go about finding potential clients? Any helpful hints would be appreciated 🙂
    Thank you

  6. I totally agreed with above points. I have hired meeting room space and I have got many benefits such as real time conferencing, reducing the cost of travel and increased in flexibility and efficiency. It shortens the development cycles and communication with partners and with employees becomes easy.
