Hear from our current creative hub assistant:

Working at Colonnade House has been a great experience for me, the close-knit team we have are all supportive and we get on really well with each other, making work enjoyable and allowing us to bounce off of each other easily. This role has given me a chance to meet local creators in the area through interacting with studio members and artists exhibiting here on a frequent basis. If I hadn’t taken up this position, I don’t think I’d even know about half the stuff that really go on in town let alone how diverse and unique its creative department is.
