Come and use our co-work space for free

We are working on our plans for the co-work space at The Circle. We have completed a survey and we are going to be interviewing some of our regular visitors.

It’s very important to us (and you!) that we get this space just right. That’s why we’re not rushing into anything until we have a community of people regularly working in the space who can tell us how to get it right for them.

From now, until the end of June. we are inviting you to come in and use the space completely free. You will become beta testers of our prototype space. The prototype space will consist of furniture we already have with the added bonus of WiFi.

All you have to do to take advantage of this offer is email bookings@thecircledundee.org.uk and let us know when you are coming. Then, bring along your laptop, notebook, hand-knitting or whatever it is you do and spend the day with us and a growing community of co-workers, absolutely free.

Questions asked about The Circle on a daily basis

A blog post by Jasmin, Creative Apprentice at The Circle.

Nicola and myself have come up with some questions about The Circle people tend to ask the most often. I have typed up the questions and also put the answers to them underneath so it is easier for people to find out more information about The Circle without scanning through the website for the answer you are looking for. Hopefully we have covered all of them!

Visit The Circle in Staffa Place, Dundee

I’ve read your website. Can I come and see The Circle for myself?

We have been bowled over by the interest from within Dundee and further afield in what we are doing at The Circle. Understandably there is a lot of public interest in this building as we are taking on what was formerly known as the Claverhouse Building, which has been a city training centre for decades with generations coming through the doors on Staffa Place for employment and skills training.

There is also a lot of curiosity about the future for the building. Creating a community hub for social enterprises, charities and businesses to find affordable space and thrive by collaborating with like-minded organisations is a novel concept, especially so due to its mixed spaces of meeting rooms, co-working and offices.

There will be plenty of opportunity to come and take part in events at The Circle whether it’s for community events, training or meetings as already we are taking bookings for 2017. However, if you just want to come and have a nosey, you can absolutely do that too! We have put 3pm on Monday afternoons aside for visitors. Our Facilities & Services Development Manager, Nicola, will be happy to show you around and share our vision for the space.

You can book via Eventbrite so we know who is coming.

We look forward to seeing you!

What makes a good workspace?

At The Circle we are embarking on a journey that will transform a former government skills centre in Dundee to a vibrant hub of activity for charities, social enterprises, organisations and the community. We want to provide affordable workspace to people doing great work that helps the community as well as the economy.

 

With so much potential we want to make sure we get the space just right. We have refurbishment and development work to do and are working with expert local suppliers to get great service and quality of support. What is most important is that the space works for those who need it the most… So what do you think? What is most important in your workspace?
