The Workspace

Our Malone studios, housed in a 3 storey period building in the leafy Queen’s Quarter features high ceilings, original period features and large bay windows that let in lots of natural light. In these studios we offer both private and shared workspaces.

Like all of our studios the space we offer is fully serviced, flexible, furnished and affordable. Our prices are all inclusive including rent, rates, utilities, Hi-Speed Fibre Broadband and free use of the private meeting space which includes access to a plasma screen. There is also a gorgeous glass roofed atrium which can be used for informal meetings with clients, as a breakout space for staff or just somewhere relaxing to get away from your desk and get creative!

Taking a space at Blick Studios is more than just a physical space it’s about meeting and working alongside like minded people, collaborating, learning and sharing experiences.

Directions

The studios are easily accessible by car, bus, bike & foot. You’ll find free on-street parking on all surrounding streets, on peak busy times it can be hard to find a space on adjacent streets, but you can nearly always get a space on Windsor Park which is only a few minutes walk up the road. It is also possible to park on the main Malone Road outside clearway times. Paid parking is available at the Wellington Park Hotel, a 1 min. walk from the studios. It is also conveniently close to local shops, restaurants, copy shops and Queen’s University.  

By train or bus

Travel from your location to Belfast City Centre. If you are travelling by train, the optimal station for you to get off would be Great Victoria Street. From Belfast City Centre get a Metro bus number 8B or 8C at Donegall Square East.  Buses run regularly and can also be boarded at bus stops heading out of the city on Bedford Street, Dublin Road, Bradbury Place, University Road, and the Malone Road.  There is a bus stop directly across from Blick Shared Studios, if you are unsure of where to get off, ask the driver to alert you of the stop closest to Chlorine Gardens/Fisherwick Church.  When you get off the bus, look directly across the road and you will see Blick’s big grey door. Please note that the 8A in either direction bypasses Blick and should be avoided.

Instagram post 2121083814330999486_295518986 We are excited to announce our first ‘The Time is Now’ 4 week course in collaboration with @womenfolk.co @blickstudios & @creatingaspace
.
.
This course will help you to create space in your life to work out what you want to do. To take the time to establish your values, vision and goals. To work out what is holding you back and help you find the confidence to make small tangible steps to achieve your creative dreams and ambitions no matter how big. .
.
In Northern Ireland, there is a mentality that seemingly is ingrained in our culture of making ourselves small. Especially for women in the creative industries. There aren’t many spaces made for us to flourish and grow in a way that fits our needs. Enterprise support is generally based around high growth businesses rather than value led businesses that fit our personal goals and ambitions. There are many reasons people want to work for themselves and start their own business. This course will give you space and time to help you to define your personal values and vision and goals for the future and a plan for how to get there.
.
.WHO IS THIS FOR? .
.
This course is for creative women that want to take their dreams/ideas/concepts/current business/ideas to the next level. It is a creative approach to taking control and accountability for your life and going for what you want to do.
.
.
WHY ARE WE OFFERING THIS COURSE?
.
.
We are providing this course because we feel that it is important to create space in your life to sit down and plan out what you want to do. To take the time to evaluate what is holding you back from manifesting the dreams & ambitions that you have always wanted.
.
.
For more information visit https://www.blickstudios.org/events/the-time-is-now-4-week-course/ and book your space today!
We have limited spaces for the first run of this course!

Instagram post 2119633449265678398_295518986 @creatingaspace & @blicksharedstudios have teamed up to create an event that will be an interactive panel discussion.
-
The phrase ‘The Time is Now’ came from noticing a change within Belfast within the creative scene. We love that everyone seems inspired to pursue their creative dreams. ‘The Time is Now’ is turning into a platform where we gather together to encourage men and women to challenge themselves, be vulnerable in a space by sharing experiences within their industries and give an insight into the beginning stages of their career.
-
It is an ongoing project that focuses on creative people that are at the beginning and middle stages of their career, and creating a community of people that can share their stories and connect to other people that are going through the same thing.  Often we see people in the media that have “made it” but never show the process of how they got there. We aim to create a platform where people can share authentic stories, speak on their process and encourage people that they are not alone.
-
In this panel talk, we are focusing on the experience of people that have recently left university or will shortly leave university. Breaking down what that looks like, sharing the trials and tribulations of how hard it can be and showing different cases of how people take on unpredicted routes from their chosen discipline.
-
This is open to everyone because we know that everyone can relate to the unpredicted opportunities that may take us away from the plan in our head. We will be asking about the process of how people got to where they are now in the starting & middle part of their journey.
-
If you feel that you need encouragement, or just to hear someone else saying that they don’t know what they are doing, or life has taken them down a different planned path, this is the event for you.
-
We never come at an event saying that we know the answers, we simply step back and listen to people’s stories and hope that it inspires someone to make a start to go for their dreams.
-
Stay tuned for more updates!

-
Karishma Kusurkar from Karishma’s world and Christine James from Blick Shared Studios will be running a 2 day creative enterprise retreat on the 5th & 6th of October.
-
They are aiming to empower and inspire creatives to make their creative business idea a reality. Having worked with creative businesses over the past decade, we wanted to create a tailor-made retreat for those in the creative sector looking to start something new.
-
We know that it can be particularly challenging to build a viable business in the creative sector and our hope is that this retreat makes it a little easier to understand how that could be made possible whilst ensuring your creativity is able to flourish.
-
Over the weekend retreat, we will focus on 4 key areas:
-
Values & Vision – understanding your values, vision and goals and how these will impact your creative business.
-
Your Customer Journey – understanding your customers’ values and needs, ensuring your business meets their needs and learning how to communicate with potential customers before, during and beyond launching a product or service.
-
Business idea & Skills – refining your business idea, products & services, understanding your USP, pricing your work, networking and making connections and managing your finances.
-
Communicating with your customers – creating a brand with integrity (visuals, words & actions), building an online presence that works (website, social media etc.) and presenting your work in person (sales, pitching & presentations)
-
At the end of the retreat participants will leave with a completed values and vision board, creative enterprise toolkit (useful resources & templates) and a creative business action plan.
-
The full course will cost £80.
-

Instagram post 2115998541142080506_295518986 We are excited to announce our next event that is happening on the 10th September titled :
SME’s Survival – Unlocking Your Business Potential With Your Customers Perspective
-
SME’s face significant challenges today. Accessing new customers and retaining existing customers is hard work. This is because customers today are spoiled for choice and have more options to choose from than ever before. But also, because habits are constantly changing as technology evolves around us.
-
This session is about offering SME’s practical tools that they can use for their business to help them access their customer, understand who they are and their habits. The more you understand about your customer, the more opportunities for you to increase revenue from different customer markets. Markets that you’re missing at the moment because the needs of certain customer groups is unknown to you.
-
There are only 10 places* available so booking fairly early on is essential. To book, https://elizabethmeehan.typeform.com/to/DD2lAM
- *2 persons from each SME allowed.
-
This session forms part of USER-FACTOR a three-year project funded by the Interreg Atlantic Area Programme, aiming to strengthen innovation in small and medium enterprises (SMEs). It is offered free but, offering the latest thinking in, it is worth £265
-
Location: Blick Shared Studio, 46 Hill St
Date & Time: 10th September, 6-9pm
