Typeset CIC

We're a non-profit community enterprise located in a heritage building in the heart of Rotherham town centre, 5 minutes' walk from bus, train, and tram-train stations. Run by a group of local artists and curators, we're creating an inspiring space close to local independent cafes and leading culture organisations, with the aim of supporting creatives, freelancers, and remote workers.
