Collaboration & coffee on your doorstep with IC Swansea
Tucked away amongst the bars and restaurants of Swansea’s Wind Street is a community of freelancers and independent workers who use indycube, a co-working space built for connectivity, collaboration and coffee-drinking.
Network of creativity & collaboration
Indycube started with a single office space back in 2010 in the ITV Centre, Culverhouse Cross, which has since been demolished, making way for a housing estate. However, the company has now grown Wales-wide and even has co-working spaces set up across the border in Wakefield and Walthamstow, with more soon to follow.
Swansea’s branch of indycube is spacious, bright and warm, with desks decorated and personalised by full-time members. Amongst the laptops and computers are drawings, children’s colouring sheets, models, artwork, plants, and posters. Part of the ethos of indycube is to encourage members and desk users to make themselves at home, forming a network of creativity and collaboration.
indycube spaces big and small + Device Lab
Wind Street’s indycube is also home to a Device Lab, which includes a collection of phones, tablets, and computers for anyone to use for website testing and development. As with every indycube space, big or small, there’s unlimited free tea and coffee as well as super fast wifi and two meeting rooms, one of which is large enough for training days and conferences.
Added benefit of partnership with Community Union
For independent workers who want more than just a place to work, indycube have recently partnered with Community Union in order to bring freelancers and members of the gig economy together, utilising their collective voice. For £10 a month, IC Community offers access to benefits such as legal aid, invoice factoring, total motor assist and other lifestyle perks, from discounted cinema tickets to insurance.
