Mondays, 12 - 5.30pm

Age 16+

Groundspace is free studio space for freelancers at The Riverfront.

Groundspace is an initiative set up by Groundwork (formally known as Groundwork Pro) that aims to help break down the financial barrier freelancers can face when accessing studio spaces.

Opening up these spaces is vitally important to supporting freelancers in their creative practice, allowing seeds of ideas to flourish and for dancers to stay connected to their bodies.

What can you use the space for? This space may offer an opportunity to: 

  • Develop your personal practice

  • Exchange skills and ideas with fellow artists

  • Begin or engage in a creative process

  • Have extra space to do that pre-recorded / online dance class
