Calling all home workers, mobile workers, freelancers and home based business, the aim is to bring professionals together in an informal working environment in a new idea from Rural Arts…


What is Co-working?

Co-working is a style of work in a shared working environment. Unlike in a typical office  where people are employed by the same company, those co-working are usually freelancers, entrepreneurs, or have home based businesses.

People who Co-work are usually independent professionals who work better when they are amongst other people, than they would alone.

Why Co-work?

Co-working is a great way to get yourself and your business out of the house to network with other creative like-minded people, to maximise creativity and minimise the isolation of sole working.
Co-working differs from networking in that the aim is not to find new clients, sell yourself or your business, but you might be able to exchange help and advice.

Co-working events are taking off across the UK. 42% of businesses are home based and the stats are higher in rural areas.
