About this space

The ONEONESIX space has been a community hub for over 100 years. It has been collaboratively ran as a community operated space open for original, innovative and unique forms of sharing, dialogue, performance, arts practice, citizen media, physical arts, and anything you might dream of since 2015.

This page is to hire our comfy and cozy mezzanine space. This is just above our foyer and is great for small gatherings, meet ups and meetings. It has informal seating and cushions. The hire includes Wi-Fi and access to our kitchen for food prep or making a tea and coffee. We have basic tea and coffee supplies, but please BYO milk. Our coffee shop Luna Espresso is open in the foyer weekdays. Best of all it’s FREE to hire for community groups.

This is a community space that values people working together, sharing a space, creating good will and participatory activity. The space is a community resource to create inclusive activities that value the contributions of all participants, and as such, we ask that the groups hiring the space understand and respect this kaupapa.
