Beer, burgers and balloons

A noisy and diverse crowd gathered at Creative Space on Friday night to celebrate the opening of Aberdeen’s first co-working space.

Creative Space is a dedicated area on the ground floor of Freelance World’s Riverside Drive office, where self-employed people can work on a regular or occasional basis. To mark its official opening, Freelance World held a launch party, celebrating local creativity and showing off the newly refurbished co-working space.

Local business people mixed with students and artists at the informal gathering, enjoying locally made Brewdog beer and Itsy burgers and snacks, surrounded by balloons and serenaded by live music from local musicians Oliver Richards and Davy Shanks.

Alasdair McGill, Managing Director of Freelance World said, “Our clients are self-employed and many of them work from home. We also work for a number of creative people such as artists, photographers and designers. The Creative Space gives them the opportunity to leave the isolation of their home office and gain motivation from working with other people in a bright, inspirational space.”

Creative Space user, Julie Mitchell-Mehta from Début Marketing, commented, “Because I work from home, I miss the social aspect of being in an office. To be able to work as well as have a chat and a bit of a laugh with other users always gives me a boost. It’s also great to have a base in town with coffee and wifi.”
