Applications are now open for Makespace’s new building on Park End Street. The Community Works is located in the city centre, opposite Oxford train station.The first studio spaces will be available to rent from September after the building has undergone the first phase of a major refurbishment.

Spaces are limited and so apply early to avoid disappointment. Applications will be considered based on your ability to demonstrate the following criteria:

- Your group or organisation is locally rooted
- You are delivering a social/environmental benefit
- You support the ethos of Makespace; to foster a culture of community, mutual aid, support and solidarity
- You are a social enterprise or Charity; or can demonstrate how your profits are being reinvested to deliver a social or environmental benefit
- You are a start-up or group at an early stage of development (preferred but not essential)

This is phase one of a bigger project. Makespace is also raising funds to open up additional spaces in the Community Works in order to support BAME-led organisations and communities impacted by COVID-19 with subsidised work, meeting and organising space.

More information on the second phase of the project will be available soon. Please also register your interest below if you are a BAME-led organisation and/or if your organisation has been directly impacted by COVID-19 and are seeking subsidised space in order to be able to recover and continue your activities.
