Access Space is the UK's longest running and most sustainable free, open digital arts lab
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.

Access Space will not be receiving donated computers and electronic equipment with immediate effect until Monday 18 November inclusive.
Thanks to the generosity of the sustainability focused people of Sheffield we need to utilise and recycle what we have before we take in more of your donations. Spread the word.
Recycle Day Video
Richard Bolam has created a time-lapse video of two days, documenting volunteers and staff re-using, re-purposing and recycling obsolete computer equipment.
The video was captured using Canon PowerShot compact cameras, time-lapse enabled with the open-source Canon Hack Development Kit (CHDK).
