22 Feb Welcome to our new website!
Hi thanks for dropping by the Lismore Art Space’s brand new website.
The art space is becoming a coworking space, specialising in supporting artists and creative industries. Co-working is a new way to approach the way we work as a community – coworking spaces are part of a global community of people dedicated to the values of Collaboration, Openness, Community, Accessibility, and Sustainability in their workplaces.
What exactly is Coworking you ask? (from the Coworking Wiki) The idea is simple: independent professionals and those with workplace flexibility work better together than they do alone. Coworking spaces are about community-building and sustainability. Participants agree to uphold the values set forth by the movement’s founders, as well as interact and share with one another. We are about creating better places to work and as a result, a better way to work.
We recognise and agree that as an artist or creative industry it is very difficult to maintain a dedicated space or studio on ones own, but as creatives we do have workplace flexibility, in fact having access to specialised equipment helps too, which is why coworking principals make sense here too!
The Lismore Art Space was renovated with creative industries and artists in mind so we already have the custom built space with specialised work areas, communal spaces, gardens and outdoor areas to house and support a thriving creative community with these values in mind and as the community grows, the space and its facilities will grow too…and we will need you to help us make this a place we can all benefit from!
We have big plans and lots of exciting ideas – We are still adding some details and tweaking some parts on the site and setting up our wifi check in system at the space, so please check back in the next couple of weeks for our pricing and studio access plans as well as more information – you can like us on facebook or follow us on twitter to stay in touch.
Hope to see you soon at the art space!
