Surrounded by work from local artists and the aroma of freshly brewed coffee we caught up with Hey Sister Coffee co-founder, Nunnery Café manager, writer and poet Maliha Haider. Maliha is passionate about supporting artists, local businesses and being a part of community, as well as excellent coffee.
Our Lab at Oaklands Rise is part of a growing cultural hub with an exciting programme of events. Here, artists and creative businesses run public workshops, exhibitions, film screenings, classes and much more. We also give artists plenty of opportunities to develop professionally, through workshops, training sessions, peer crits, panel discussions and the sale of your art through Own Art.
