Blick was formed in 2007 by a group of creative entrepreneurs who wanted to create a great workspace in Belfast. Somewhere creative, inspiring and affordable. Somewhere to meet like-minded creatives and share resources, ideas and inspiration, to build a sense of community and encourage, support and inspire people to start up and grow their creative industry business.
Blick provides fully serviced shared workspace and private office space to more than 65 creative and digital small and start up businesses across 3 different locations within Belfast in Northern Ireland. We also provide virtual services, hire our meeting rooms and event spaces and run different events, workshops and courses to help build community and provide support for small and start up creative and digital businesses.
Blick is a non-profit social enterprise that uses any profits generated from its workspace and business services to help build community and provide events and support for start-up creative and digital businesses. Blick is involved with business support events and activities such as Blick Academy for creative start-ups, Share 6, Late Night Design, 25 Design pop-up, Faculty workshops, Womenfolk, Nest creative incubation, Grad residency programme and Belfast Design Week.
