Happy 2017 to you all!
We kickstart our blog in 2017 with a brand new Arrest All Mimics podcast just launched yesterday. This episode showcases Rabble Studios, just launched earlier in 2016. At a time when property developers are gobbling up creative spaces for fun, Ben Tallon meets with founder and designer Dan Spain. Rabble houses 24 creative professionals and also functions as a creative events, talks, hub and function space in Cardiff. Dan talks about finding a place to work to stave off the cabin fever, and also taking one step further to self-finance and open a much bigger co-working set up.
What challenges has he faced and how has he linked up with other independent businesses in the area? This episode is is a great piece of enterprising and a valuable insight into what creatives need to do to turn the tide against the property virus in order to safeguard a creative business presence in our towns and cities.
