“We are new, we are vibrant and we are working together to make Bristol a better place to live and work by sharing ideas and helping to motivate each other to be the best we can be.”
CEO Paper Arts & Redbrick House
Our plan for Redbrick House started when we needed to find a new home for Paper Arts. We were renting a shop in the center of Bristol for 3 years, but the rent was unaffordable.
As a social enterprise we support creatives and entrepreneurs to develop their business ideas. So, we decided to create a new home that took this idea even further. The top priorities were to support a variety of members and promote collaboration, so we started searching.
Thankfully, we lucked out and found a fantastic building.
The central location was perfect, plus it had separate floors that allowed for a range of workspaces. That meant we could create spaces that suited a whole range of members with different needs. Plus, there is a beautiful top floor where everyone can have coffee, share ideas and meet like-minded people.
With our new favourite building we’re continuing to build our community. Be it florists, photographers, developers or marketers, every day we walk in to hear members helping each other out.
Now that we’re gathering steam, we’ll be taking the idea even further. With plans in the works for in-house skill sharing and personal development workshops, it feels like we’re just getting started.
What makes us different from other workspaces is that we actively promote peer to peer learning.
We believe that together we have all the answers, sharing opens up opportunities for us all to grow.
There are loads of other benefits to being part of our collaborative community:
A beautiful workspace with the opportunity to interact with other creative and motivated individuals.
Three meeting rooms of varying sizes, equipped and ready for any kind of meeting you require.
Our small friendly team are here to help! We're based at Redbrick House and ready to answer your questions. We all take it in turns to act as host to make sure that we really get to know our members, help make connections between people and be an active part of the community ourselves.
