UpStart is a collaborative working and meeting space for changemakers in our community to be part of creating positive social impact in our community through an array of enterprises that focus on building our community from within. UpStart has been home to a number of local and visiting projects relating to our local food systems, arts, disability employment and local LGBTQ spaces. We also the regular workspace for a number of individual start-up and home-based businesses. Our ethics mean we support small-scale local social enterprises first and we seek to minimize our impact on the environment in all that we do. UpStart has also become a venue of choice for meetings, workshops, and events.
