Once you choose a space, you’ll pay a deposit that’s equivalent to one month’s rent and be asked to commit to a minimum of 3 months.  There will be no additional fees or charges during your residency as broadband, utilities like heating and electric, and even use of our meeting room and equipment are included in your rent. After your minimum term of 3 months you may remain on a month-to-month basis, simply giving 30 days notice if you would like move on. That’s it!

Falling within the UK’s definition of the creative industries – ‘those industries that are based on individual creativity, skill and talent with the potential to create wealth and jobs through developing intellectual property’ – includes thirteen sectors: advertising, architecture, the art and antiques market, crafts, design, designer fashion, film, interactive leisure software (ie. video games), music, the performing arts, publishing, software, and television and radio. You will be asked to complete a short application form to ensure your eligibility before taking a space at Blick.
