The conference will take place in The Engine Room, our newly redeveloped community space, and creative multi-purpose learning studio for all. Designed as a functional art classroom, digital studio, and inspiring social space to gather, The Engine Room aims to be a hub of creativity and ideas at the heart of The Exchange and the wider organisation. Available for use with schools, The Engine Room offers blended digital functionality, enabling users to reach people in the space and those joining in remote locations.
