The Scratch Hub at Battersea Arts Centre is offering all registered WAF artists free access to its co-working space from 23 April - 31 July.
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.

WAF Access: What is it?
Audio and Verbal Description are means of making the arts accessible through words to blind and partially sighted people, who use a lightweight headset to listen to the description during a performance or an exhibition.
Captioning is similar to subtitling and gives Deaf, deafened and hard of hearing people access to your performance.
Sign Language Interpreted Performances allow deaf members of the audience to understand your show and follow the story.
Relaxed Performances are designed to provide an opportunity for people with autism spectrum conditions, learning disabilities or other sensory and communication disorder.
Touch Tours can be a great tool to allow blind and visually impaired audiences to experience your work, whether live art or visual arts.
