Our community programme caters to all, with a vast range of workshops, participation and engagement opportunities for all ages, backgrounds and abilities. The PurpleDoor is a welcoming home to all who want to use it, and we’re always looking for ideas and suggestions. So if there’s a workshop you want to see, or a group who’d like to use the space, let us know and we’ll do our best to provide for you.

Get Involved!

Most of our programmes launch in 2022 when we have a physical space and when we can be together. However, some programmes will be launching in advance. This includes our our book club, which you can join now online. Find out all our updates, including information of when to join, by signing up to our newsletter.
