Creative Coworkers is a non-profit collective of (mostly) creative professionals with the desire to share space and amenities, and build a community together. The Studio at Creative Coworkers is the place we make that happen. Our priority and focus is in developing our community, and contributing to each others success. At over 4500 square feet of space in the edgy and awesome Railtown community, we have an ample amount of space to spread out and work together or independently.
We curate a calendar of events that’s designed to support the professional and personal interests of our members. Members receive reduced rate or free admission to all events, and can request programming, or use the space to hold their own workshops and meetups at no additional charge.
We have a private photo/video studio space that’s perfect for headshots, interviews and other photo projects. The photo studio is bookable by the hour and features a 24′ white wall and floor as well as C Stands, sand bags, reflectors and other tools. Some of our desk memberships include unlimited access – inquire for details.
Our kitchen was designed especially for us, including beautiful handmade BC Douglas Fir tables and stools, made for us in New Westminster. We also have a fancy espresso machine. Coffee costs just $2/cup, or $25/month for unlimited! We have our coffee roasted for us weekly by Goliath Coffee Roasters.

More than 50% of our members frequently bike to work, and we even have a cycling advocacy group in our midst! We offer indoor secure bike parking so that your ride is perfectly safe – AND a shower, just in case you need to freshen up for a client meeting after your morning commute!
We love four legged friends, and our members often bring their pups to work. You’re encouraged to bring yours – provided they get along with the other dogs, and aren’t so cute and friendly that we can’t concentrate!
Flexdeskers have lots of space to spread out. Our desk furniture was made to order in North Vancouver by a local artisan. Or try working from the hammock, lounge or kitchen. We also have lockers for rent for $15/month, in case you’d like to keep some stuff here.
All levels of membership enjoy unlimited access to our 200 square foot meeting space, which accommodates up to 10 people comfortably. White board and projector available for use.
We have plenty of space to kick back and relax. Our main lounge features a big comfy couch and a kegerator that’s always stocked with some tasty local craft beer. Every desk member gets a free beer at our weekly Friday Happy hour, and can purchase additional beer for $3/16 oz pint or $30/month gets you unlimited beer! Our secondary lounge space features a 74″ TV, Blue Ray Player, Wii and a hammock that’s perfect for afternoon napping.
