Coworking at In Good Company growing trend in Wellington

Coworking at In Good Company is a growing trend in Wellington


In Good Company, a social space for creative and freelance professionals located in the heart of Cuba Street, is riding up a storm after it’s opening in June 2014.

The space has become not just a place to work and collaborate, but to share and connect. With live gigs, walls filled with local artwork and the influx of permanent residents, the idea of a home away from home is settling in.

“This space provides an ideas incubator for creative minds relieves the isolation of freelancers and be a type of a community” explains Mariya Kurpriyenko, creator of In Good Company.

IGC have just successfully reached their target on Kickstarter, which will add as a huge contribution to make In Good Space as great as it can be.

This new way of working is primarily used by free-lance professionals, enabling them to work in an art-gallery style environment.

“I thought it would be so great to have an accessible and affordable space in the inner city Wellington where people can do work, plan projects, make art, read books, be inspired and meet others doing the same” Kurpriyenko explained.

IGC was inspired by Mariya’s travels where she came across “anti-cafes” and “coffices”.

Good Time Cards are now available where you can pre-pay for time and get some great discounts from IGC'S fellow sponsors. Speciality teas and treats are also now offered alongside bottomless coffee.

Upcoming Events:
Fraser Hoffe exhibition 'Toxic', till end of November
Mimi Gilbert & Chris Ott music, 28/11/14, 8pm
'Gift It' group art show, all through December
Friday Performance Nights, all through December

IGC is open Monday to Friday 11am-5pm, and On Request. It is located upstairs at 166a Cuba St, Wellington.
