Wharf Chambers is an affordable space for art, film, music, politics and discussion. And this is possible because it’s not run by a single boss, but by a team of workers; with a voting membership democratically influencing the direction of its development. You’ve got to be a member to visit, but don’t worry it’s low cost and easy to signup here.
