RARA is an open access workspace established in Clapton, London. We provide long and short term users with affordable space in which to do anything and everything.

Welcome to the era of total creative freedom, the antithesis of the 9 – 5. A platform to individual design practice, with a collaborative atmosphere.

We also take on projects as a collective – our mix of architects, builders, artists, makers, writers, designers and more allows us a unique approach to a range of projects.

Our aims are:

– To provide genuinely affordable workspace and equipment for creative projects
– To support our members in carrying out their practice
– To aid those seeking to transition from working for a larger organisation to self lead creative projects
– To enable those wishing to carry out creative projects alongside their day to day work
– To create a supportive and friendly network
– To be economically and ecologically sustainable
