Crackbook: a while ago our Library Collective made the audacious move of opening a Crackbook page! This has been used to promote our free library, events/news from BASE, and other events/news from Bristol & further afield that we think are worthwhile/relevant. Find them here Kebele Libe on Facebook but to contact us with queries please use the email only!
Our social centre includes various rooms/spaces that are available to be used by individuals & groups/campaigns. Typical uses include meetings & workshops & talks; benefit cafes; film nights; gatherings; small parties (birthdays, handfastings); banner making; and so on. Facilities available at BASE include the kitchen & cooking equipment, cafe/event space for up to 50 people seated/more if standing, individual rooms holding from 6 to 45 people, film projector & screen, internet access.
Whilst each request for room use is considered separately, there are some basic criteria to bear in mind, for example – your event should be not-for-profit (or at least a benefit!); it shouldn’t contravene any of BASE’s Principles; it shouldn’t cause a nuisance to our neighbours.
We do not formally charge for the use of spaces & facilities, but we do ask for ‘suggested donations’ to cover wear & tear, utility bills, maintenance etc. Room Users have 2 options in covering costs – firstly ‘pay as you go’ room use for each single event; secondly taking on ‘User group’ status which means in return for space/facility use you provide a labour contribution of running at least one Sunday night cafe and carrying out one clean of BASE every 3 months.
For full details of facilities available, the suggested donations for use, some basic rules, and our safer spaces agreement, please read/complete/print off the Room Users Agreement:
