Use Space Reception

The Use.Launch party


…and we have lift off!

This week, we finally opened our doors to movers and shakers from the Manchester creative, education and business growth sectors for the official launch of Use.Space. We cut the (metaphorical) ribbon by welcoming businesses, start-ups, entrepreneurs, students and freelancers from across the North West region to tour our dynamic coworkspaces to a soundtrack of electro-swing from DJ Emma Clair.

As guests went on their journey around the campus, from Café to Business Lounge through to botanical Greenhouse, we shared our hopes and dreams for the space. We also enjoyed an array of artisan nibbles, sweet treats and bubbles from the marvellous Buzzy Bee Bakery because what’s a party without fizz and Nutella-filled cookies?

We had live painting from artist, James Roper (whose incredible art can be spotted throughout the space), we caught up with old friends, we connected with new faces and most excitingly of all, we finally got to show Use.Space off to the world.

For us, that’s what it all about – community, creativity and making concept come to life. So, to everybody who came along, a massive thank you. To those who couldn’t make it but would like a look around or some more information about memberships, please feel free to get in touch with our Community Manager, Simon:

Here are just a few Kodak moments from the #UseLaunch soirée but head over Instagram @use.mcr for plenty more where that came from.
