HFC opens co-working space


The Hall for Cornwall has welcomed the first tenants to its new co-working space.

Husa, which means ‘to enchant and dream’ in Cornish, offers a range of offices and hotdesking space within the building and just a few footsteps from the new Cornwall Playhouse

Part of the Hall’s three-year transformation completed last year, the area has been funded by the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) through the Government’s Local Growth Fund.

The new tenants include international theatre company Wildworks; Creative UK, the independent network for the UK’s creative industries; Black Voices Cornwall, the charity tackling racism through education, awareness and empowerment; and Cornwall Pride, which supports and celebrates Cornwall’s LGBTQ+ community.

Julien Boast, CEO and creative director at Hall for Cornwall, said: “Husa is fast becoming what we hoped it would be – a melting pot of creativity, collaboration and innovation focused on Cornwall’s creative future.

“As an organisation we are open to all, and with Husa we are bringing together local and creative businesses, start-ups, artists, charities and social enterprises in an environment where new ideas can flourish. Through Husa, I think we can really celebrate the diversity and inclusivity of our creative sector.”
