Vacant Space

Axisweb runs Vacant Space, a programme that connects creative people and groups with empty property.


Shops, Offices, Industrial spaces available for creative projects

How Vacant Space Works

Axisweb is a registered charity. Our charitable status means that it can be more affordable for us to occupy an empty property than for it to sit empty.

By becoming tenants of empty properties we make these available to our members (artists, art professionals and creatives) for them to use.
