*Through the month of January we will only be open weekdays 9-5pm, and we will use this time to asses the access needs of our members

APPLICATIONS NOW OPEN!

With one week until the end of our crowdfunder, we’re officially opening up our membership packages, and to kick things off we’re offering 2 months for the price of one!

January will be a ‘soft’ opening so that we can get people in, figure out people’s needs and make the space really work for those using it. We will open from 9 till 5 on weekdays, with an aim to be up to full opening hours by February. We will be listening to what to you want and we will make the space work for you. Things being a little hectic at this time is also why we’re offering your January membership for free when you buy a membership for February!

We also have several free memberships available. You must submit an application for consideration (deadline 12 noon, 17 Dec, 2019). Applications will be stripped of all identifying information and judged anonymously and purely on a needs basis, with priority being given to those at the greatest social/economically disadvantage.

In 2020, we’ll be opening a new community driven creative space for women : The Guild of Kindred Spirits, that will come with:

  • The capacity to support 40 women on a daily basis
  • A direct to garment printer
  • A Risograph printer
  • Two Industrial Embroidery Machines
  • A full kitchen with tea, coffee and food staples as standard
  • A play space for young children
  • Daily creative workshops

It’s been a long road to creating our Guild of Kindred Spirits as we wanted to ensure that it was completely accessible, affordable and meeting all of the needs that we know to be imperative to an inclusive space.

Wild & Kind belongs to the community and any space that we create must always reflect this.

We’re passionate about “Community Over Competition” and our space is a place of collaboration, support and solidarity for our members. We hope to lift the barriers that many face when entering the creative industries and that’s why we have ensured our memberships are affordable and flexible, our space is completely accessible and we are trialling making the space child friendly. Need to bring your wee one with you a few times a week? We got you! 

There is room for all of us and wherever we can create more room and more opportunities, we will.

We want to make this space as good as it can be and ideally, we’d like to be able to offer more free desks to those that need them. We’d like to widen the scope of the workshops that we provide and, finally, we’d love to create jobs within the space.

APPLICATIONS FOR SPACES ARE NOW OPEN

We have 9 free/subsidised spaces available, with 6 starting in January, and another 3 in February when we extend our opening hours. We expect the demand for these spaces to be high, but as soon as funding allows us to do so we will open up more applications.

This is a new venture for us, and so it may take a while for us to get into the right swing of things, but for now free spaces are provided for a period of 3 months.

Applications open!

Application deadline 27th December, 2019 at 12 noon.
