Using the Space

We offer free organising and event space  for unfunded activist and self-organised education groups, and we ask those who can afford to make a donation on a sliding scale to support the space.

The space is bookable from Monday-Friday and sometimes at the weekend.

Join the MDR’s Friends scheme to help us sustain our archive as a resource for movements today, to continue to programme events and outreach around our collections, and provide meeting spaces, all free of cost.
