Hub A is a brand new space for local creatives to come together, network and thrive.

The three-story building, filled with desks, resources and offices, will open its doors within the next few weeks. We caught up with a spokesperson from the building to find out more about what they have planned for the exciting new venture.

The idea originated over six years ago, when the Something Entirely Different team realised that there was a huge need for a space for the creative people of Hull to work and connect in.

The creative group, who are responsible for the famous Come to Hull, It’s Not Sh*t Anymore T-Shirts, started a Spacehive crowdfunding campaign to raise much-needed money to bring their idea to fruition.

Thanks to the generosity of local people, it is now well on the way. Hub A is now having the final touches put to it and will open very shortly.

It’s located in the heart of Hull City Centre, above the post office on Lowgate. This will be incredible for those wanting to work right in the middle of the Hull UK City of Culture events and exhibitions.

The building will have its own shared studio space, where people can rent a desk for just £50 per month and work alongside likeminded individuals.

“It will be a place for collaborating and skill sharing,” the representative explains.

Meanwhile, other rooms will provide vital resources for both members and non-members.

“We have a growing library of books, as well as a photography studio, creative suite and 3D printing and screen-printing facilities,” they tell us. “We’ve also just been kindly donated a laser printer.”

On top of this, teams of creatives can rent a private office space, starting from the affordable price of £150.

“It can be quite difficult for those just starting out with freelancing to progress when they have a lack of money for resources. Hub A aims to change this,” the spokesperson explains.

“If you’re cooped up at home doing work, you can go a bit crazy. The shared space will serve as a great spot to network, skillshare and just be in the company of others.”

Once open, there will also be a whole host of events and workshops available: “We’re planning to put on affordable life drawing classes,” they expand.

The team is currently working tirelessly, alongside full-time jobs, to get the space looking spick and span in time for the opening. It has been a long time in the making, but the Hub A dream is finally becoming a reality.

They are currently encouraging individuals and groups to get in touch via email (info@hubahull.co.uk ) to arrange private tours of the building. You can find out more information on the Hub A website.

Meanwhile, you can follow their progress on Facebook.
