Co-working spaces, which started in 2005, is fast becoming a trend here in the Philippines. It is typically creating a space/place that serves as an alternative to those who are working from home or those who work in cafes. Co-working spaces offer an environment that is more productive, more innovative, and giving people an opportunity to work with various professionals that normally wouldn’t be seen in one place. There are a couple of other co-working spaces in the metro, but according to an article in Coconuts Manila, A_SPACE is the most cosmopolitan of all the spaces they have surveyed. READ: @IGersManila relaunches #TheColl I attended @IGersManila’s #TheColl MusterDate at A_SPACE last 18-October-2014 that got me curious as to what the venue is all about. It is more than just a conventional workplace. They offer a lot of services too such as rocking spaces for events like workshops, film-screening, casual networking, etc.; assistance on serious matters like legal advice or accounting systems; design, music, and print inspirations; food and beverage offerings; and, a free gallery space offered to emerging visual artists.

Just this year, big events happened at the A_SPACE Gallery. They had an acoustic night with Sofar Sounds Manila, first _TALKS session with Oliver Segovia, and exhibits of French Photographer Romain Rivierre (FACÉtieux) and Beauty queen and UN Volunteer Reena Rae (I Am She).

And this coming November 29, IGersManila is proud to present its 3rd Philippine Instagram Photo Exhibit at the A_SPACE Gallery. More than 60 visual stories in black and white shall be displayed for #KalyePH2014 #IGExhibitPH003.

We invite you to join us at A Space Manila and see the amazing work of our fellow Instagram’ers on Saturday 29-November-2014. The gallery is open to the public from 12:00NN to 8:00PM only.

Keep the good vibes rolling! #ktgvr
