Blick Studios - About Us

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.

Monday Motivation on a very difficult week for mos Monday Motivation on a very difficult week for most small businesses. Like most small businesses in Belfast we have already been impacted by the pandemic and will continue to be over coming months. We have postponed all our events and workshops, cancelled external bookings and are closed to new residents for the time being. No-one knows what will happen in the coming days and weeks so all we can do is keep calm and try and use the downtime efficiently to rest and think, develop new skills and work on new projects

Asking questions of what you really want out of life, what is your dream lifestyle and how can we create a plan to move forward. - It is extremely important to always dream big, but it is equally as important to do the work, create systems in place to get there and to be consistent. - You don’t have to do it alone. We want to create an encourage safe space to figure out what YOU need to do and what you want to do. - Time is something that we always feel that we don’t have. Therefore we know that it is hard to make time for ourselves and priories those needs and desires. - By choosing to do this course, you will be choosing to invest in yourself, your wellness and examine what you want to do and change.

Jan & Feb are months of planning for us at Blick. Jan & Feb are months of planning for us at Blick. Resetting the balance after the busyness of the previous period and catching up with admin and other essential tasks. We have lots of new events and projects planned for 2020. However it's so easy to get caught up in plans and details and not actually get time to implement new ideas so keeping this quote in mind over the next couple of weeks to keep us moving forward to our 2020 goals
