RECYCLING:Please note that our computer recycling operation has changed. Due to the diminishing demand for desktop computers we now only recycle laptops which we use in our charitable activities. Please ring us on 0114 249 5522 or email email@example.com should you wish to donate laptops as we are not open every day. Thanks : ) If you need to recycle old desktop computers, keyboard, mice, screens etc, please contact Aspire Community Enterprise on 0114 285 3788
At Access Space, people interested in art, design, computers, recycling, music, electronics, photography and meet more like-minded people, share and develop skills and work on creative, enterprising and technical projects.
We operate at a very low cost with a minimal carbon footprint, because we recycle donated computers and use free, open source software. We run drop-in activities and workshops, exhibitions and arts events and have opportunities for volunteering. We also run the Refab Space fabrication facility and an ethical web design service.

COMMONSense is a 62 page magazine, launched in 2010, created from submissions to a call for pieces which reflect a theme connecting the activities of Access Space to the wider world, “the commons”. We asked for prose (stories, thoughts, book reviews, bibliographies…), poetry, photographs, cartoons, drawings or graphics. It was edited by Dougald Hine, with art direction by Anne-Marie Culhane.
People sent us material relating to green issues, land ownership, social relations, the internet, copyright, software and a whole host of other subjects.
