Just like us, creative spaces some in all different shapes and sizes. While they are normally designed to encourage creative thinking, anywhere that isn’t your usual office can be called a creative space. Some are designed to be open plan, others for brainstorming projects. After all, what’s creative to you might not be creative to someone else, and vice versa. They can be used for a whole host of different events and activities, and for good reason. Whatever it looks like, getting away from the expected is proven to increase creative thinking.
Why Use A Creative Space?
It might seem like a risk to host something in a more creative space than people are used to, be it a meeting or an event. However, there are a lot of benefits to it. Look at the rising trend for coworking spaces in London. These are all creative spaces, because they are designed to get your brain to peak productivity! So, what are all of these benefits?
The main reason that people choose to hire these venues is because the space that you are in can either dampen or boost your creativity levels. By choosing to go somewhere outside of the norm, you’re getting a totally unique experience that you couldn’t replicate anywhere else. This will encourage creative thinking, and many spaces are designed to aid this, with open spaces and different working zones. As there is such a variety of different spaces available, you’ll be able to find one tailored to the type of creativity you need for your event.
If you have a team with people who don’t know each other that well, or your team has never worked collaboratively before, getting them into a space that encourages this will help them to get into the best mindset possible. Some venues are what’s known as blank canvas, meaning that you can set them up in the way that works best for you. If you have an outside facilitator or contractor coming to meet and discuss with you, doing this in a setting outside of your usual office is best. They’ll be used to managing projects and teams like yours and will appreciate the creative space.
With a new venue, comes new focus. Everyone suffers from burn-out after sitting at the same desk day-in day-out, so if there is a new project to get working on or an important board meeting, hosting it in a more creative place will ensure it keeps ultimate focus for much longer than it would in the usual setting.
What Are Creative Spaces Used For?
We’ve looked a little at the benefits of using a space that is outside of the norm, and that might give you some idea of the range of options these spaces give you. You can really host anything in a space like this, as they are so versatile that you’re sure to find one suited to your theme. So, what exactly are creative venue spaces in London used for?
Need to brainstorm a new website design? Maybe your graphic design company has just gotten a major new project? Sometimes getting together as a team to focus for a few days on something new can really get the creativity flowing. As it’s a new venue, and knowing most creative spaces, it might be a little quirky, it’s the perfect place to start thinking outside of the box. You can use this opportunity to try out new brainstorming techniques that you wouldn’t usually consider. It might spark something great!
If your business has an Annual General Meeting, what better type of space is there? You can hire a space that is the right size, so that people don’t have to squeeze into company headquarters. A creative space is somewhere that ideas can be discussed, and everyone will be more at ease with a venue space outside of the board room. You can have presentations on how the company is doing, plans for next year, and then have time for everyone to gather and chat once the formalities are out of the way.
Having a creative space for a product launch seems like a match made in heaven. You are free to pick a place that suits your company’s aesthetic, where the press can meet and take pictures, and where you can launch your product into the wider world. Having it in an unusual space will mean that people will be intrigued and want to attend to learn more about your product, and you’ll be able to host it with the theme that works best for you. This could be during the day and casual, in the evening and more formal, or something different entirely.
Having an art exhibition outside of a main gallery might sound a little odd, but it’s not that strange at all. A separate creative space will give a different type of lighting and atmosphere than you could get anywhere else. Guests can mingle and get a drink while walking around an unusual space, and it can feel a lot more welcoming than some art galleries do.
Whatever you choose to use a creative space for, it’s difficult to think of a better option for a truly unique event. Whether it’s a brainstorming session to get those creative juices flowing, or as a quirky venue for an AGM, you can use these venues to show off your style!
Creative spaces can be all sorts of different styles and size of venue, so they’re generally really flexible and can host whatever event you have in mind! From exhibitions to meetings, conferences to birthday parties, and product launches to team-building days. If you’re looking to hire a venue in London that is unique, interesting and cool, look no further than our favourite creative spaces.
There are amazing creative spaces all over London that will be perfect for your next event. Some areas - Soho, Mayfair and Camden – tend to have the best selection of creative spaces, but you can find unique and interesting venues all over London. If you have a particular area of London in mind, you can filter your search by area on Canvas and use the map function to find the perfect venue in just the right spot.
A blank canvas venue, unlike many creative spaces, is normally an open space with white walls. They make ideal spaces for events where you want to add your own creative flair, like an exhibition or product launch. They are usually very experienced in organising these types of events, and may be able to help you with hanging decorations or art on the walls. Make sure you ask how long you have the venue for, as you’ll need to include set up and clean up time in your contract – otherwise your event will be less decorated than you’d like!
