Council seeks interest in a coworking space

The Ararat Rural City Council is seeking opinions to gauge interest in a coworking space that would allow collaboration within the Ararat community.

Council is conduction a survey with the hope to see if such a facility would be used by small business owners, students, freelancers, people needing a “hot desk” and budding entrepreneurs.

Ararat Rural City Council CEO Dr Tim Harrison said that coworking spaces provide small businesses and other people who may work alone, with a space they can use for business purposes whilst also supporting collaboration and networking.

“Council feels this could be a really fantastic facility to have in our region and we would like to gauge the level of interest out there in the community,” Dr Harrison said.

“If you are someone who would really benefit from such a coworking space, I urge you to complete our survey and let us know how you would use such a facility.”

The facility would also be available to hire for workshops and meetings, depending on the communities needs.

Anyone who would use a coworking space is encouraged to complete THIS survey before it closes tomorrow, April 29.
