Paying it Forward directly supports your creative cultural community


Paying it Forward ensures Vacant Assembly can continue developing into a professional co-working space that caters for exhibitions, events, artists studios, local small business, experimental projects, pop-ups and much more. Funds raised will go directly to both practical materials/ labor and to opportunities for artists, designers and makers.  As a self-funded project Vacant Assembly faces significant challenges so any support that enables this dream to be realised is very welcomed.
