These are a great opportunity for you to meet the WAF team and make new connections with other participants so that you can share ideas, resources and publicity and get the most out of taking part. 

In addition we offer online toolkits and guidanceand a 1-1 clinic session for more specific advice on realising your ideas and fundraising, including making an application to our grant scheme.

Co-working space at The Scratch Hub (BAC)

The Scratch Hub at Battersea Arts Centre is proud to be offering all registered WAF artists free access to its co-working space from 23 April - 31 July. Registered artists will receive their invitation once registrations are closed. 

The Scratch Hub is a creative space for unleashing great ideas. It provides over 50 desk spaces, as well as meeting and social areas. 

The Hub is the ideal location to work on the administrative side of your project, to host production meetings or to write. We cannot facilitate rehearsal space here – but we can offer a calm, inspiring environment to focus in, from 9.30am to 4.30pm, Monday-Friday.

Members of the Scratch Hub include charities, start-ups, theatre companies, film companies, freelancers and remote workers from a wide range of businesses and organisations. Collaboration and community are at the heart of the space, and this is an opportunity to take an active role within the Hub, meet other Members and make connections.
