In 2016, three new creative co-working spaces opened their doors in Cardiff – Rabble Studio, The Sustainable Studio and Tramshed Tech.

These spaces are perfect if you’re looking to take the next step to full-time blogger from bedroom-blogger.

Blogging can lead to all sorts of opportunities, such as freelance journalism and advertising. However, the key to success is discipline and treating it like a business, which is where these creative spaces can help.

All three hubs mentioned above are very different from each other, not only in terms of the physical space they occupy but the people, activities and culture offered.

What they do all share is a commitment to bring the creative community together; making connections and encouraging collaboration. This is what makes these spaces so great!

Director of Creative Economy at Cardiff University, Sara Pepper, said:

“We have seen rapid developments in Cardiff over the past year with the opening of three new hubs in the city centre.

“These hubs are vital to supporting the creative community by not only providing workspaces and meeting places but also by creating rich environments for collaboration and innovation. It was inspiring to see inside these three unique and diverse spaces and share them with those who attended the hub crawl.”

With space available from £20 and with flexible commitments, it’s a more cost-effective option than traditional office space.

Creative Cardiff recently hosted a walking tour around these creative hubs and co-working spaces, with similar events in the pipeline.
