The Story: This is Meanwhile Creative’s first project outside of Bristol and the first ‘Meanwhile House’. The building was home to Community Service Volunteers but has been empty for around two years. It is located just to the south of Cardiff Central train station, near Brains Brewery and Big Yellow Self Storage.
There are 66 spaces in total, when the project has reached capacity it is bound to become a hub for Cardiff’s small businesses and creatives. We hope to offer opportunities for informal networking, learning and business development.
