The Exchange is a membership, offering small businesses and freelancers working in the creative industries the opportunity to join the Somerset House community.
We have several dedicated Exchange co-working spaces which were created in 2011 as a direct response to a newer, more mobile style of working. Appealing to entrepreneurs, start-ups and freelancers, the Exchange soon became a popular option for those wishing to explore flexible, communal working - rather than a dedicated workspace - in a beautiful and unique setting. See our existing Exchange members here.
Membership is charged on a user tariff basis, billed monthly in advance and is on a monthly-rolling contract. Members have access to the wider Residents programme of events and the community at Somerset House.
As part of the Somerset House community, we aim to create an environment that stimulates creative projects and beneficial business for your organisation. Through collaboration and engagement, we encourage residents to work together; directly business to business or with Somerset House Trust.
Tapping into the wealth of talent within our community, we host a calendar of events which brings together residents to learn new skills, create valuable connections, be inspired or simply unwind after work. It includes networking events, skills sharing schemes, talks, screenings, and social gatherings. We also strive to work with our community on our diverse and dynamic cultural programme.
We are therefore looking for companies that are willing to contribute ideas, services, and skills to the community, whether it is being a professional mentor or a pub quiz master!
Applications are welcome across all creative sectors. Having a multi-disciplined community is an important factor when selecting new residents. We do not seek to represent a specific genre of creative industry, but wish to house a range of talent and expertise.
