Rabbits Road Institute welcomes all kinds of activities. The following guidelines have been determined to by the founding artists and users. However, all of our guidelines are open to negotiation.

Priority will be given to groups, projects or events which meet one or more of the following criteria:

  • Connection to the area.
  • No access to other spaces and resources.
  • Offering ideas, actions, practical and creative skills for social justice.
  • Creating opportunities for self directed and collective learning.
  • Voluntary, social enterprises, or creative practitioners, rather than for-profit organisations and businesses.
  • Creat­­ing and sharing common resources.
  • Creative opportunities for creative engagement and interaction, other than exhibitions.
  • Public rather than private.
  • Free or affordably-priced activities.

Groups using the space are requested to document their activity in some way – such as a small description of what happened or a photograph. This documentation will contribute to an archive of activity at Rabbits Road Institute.

Rabbits Road Institute may choose to not accept bookings for:

  • Political parties
  • Religious groups or activities promoting religion
  • Private events such as parties (see Chargeable Bookings below)
  • Exhibitions

Chargeable Bookings

Occasionally Rabbits Road Institute will accept chargeable bookings from institutions, organisations and businesses, and for private events such as parties. Profits from chargeable bookings will go back into the running of the space. Please get in touch to ask about rates.

All of these guidelines are open to negotiation. Please email info@rabbitsroadinstitute.org or come along to a community meeting.
