Our story

The Urban Commune is a collaboration between a group of artists and practitioners who believe that art and creativity is good for the soul. 

Our aim is to create a safe space for teens and adults to be creative whilst taking care of their physical, mental and emotional wellbeing; whether that be through art, painting, networking, music or just being with other likeminded beings.


We will be adding an extensive timetable of creative wellbeing classes, workshops, courses and drop-in sessions. 

There will be something for everyone of all  abilities - from arts and crafts, creative business support, photography, and holistic wellbeing.

plus exhibitions, artisan showcases, and more!
