What’s so great about a co-working space?

Working from home can be challenging. It’s lonely on a computer by yourself! No one to talk to, to share ideas with or ask for feedback. It’s also fraught with opportunities for distraction (cleaning is work, right?).

And yet the options are pretty slim. Do a quick search for co-working spaces in Sydney, and you’ll find that most of them are membership based. Head to a café and you run the risk of no wi-fi, no power points, or a surly barista glaring at you after half an hour with the same coffee.

So we’ve got a lack of space to work (for free) and a charity that’s all about making space for people to be creative. It’s a no brainer, really! That’s part of why we’ve decided to transform our café into a co-working space during the day.

BYO coffee or lunch and take advantage of our free wi-fi, plenty of desk space and comfy couches. We’ve got creative people from all disciplines ducking in and out, so there’s no shortage of inspiration or advice. From time to time we also operate as an event bar, so we’ve got your after-work tipple covered too.

Just chuck a couple dollars in our donation box and we’ll love you forever.

Informal gatherings

We encourage you to use the co-working space for meetings, informal gatherings and workshops that don’t need a lot of space.

It’s a great option for unfunded groups that need a pay-what-you-can-afford option for casual events or meet-ups.

For small groups there’s no need to book – just turn up. For larger groups or for those who want to reserve a place, fill in an application via our Space Hire page.

Need something more private?

The co-working space is open to the public. If you’re looking to hire a more private meeting space, why not try our affordable Out the Back space, or the more formal Meeting Room.
