The Source is a Meanwhile Space in central Oxford for global majority-led enterprises, and organisations supporting people from the global majority community.

Makespace Oxford is looking to support community groups to access affordable space to connect, build and thrive, and to have a wider social impact within a newly renovated building.

We believe that community spaces matter and that, within Oxford, the need for this space is even greater following the closing down of more than three Community Centres before December 2022 (Cowley, East Oxford and Blackbird Leys).

We hope that this space will play a part in community building, collaboration and positive impact: 'The Source' of empowerment, skills, creativity and passion.
