What is a Social Centre?
Social centers areÃ‚Â community spaces. They are buildings which are used for a range of disparate activities, which can be linked only by virtue of beingÃ‚Â not-for-profit. They might be organizing centers for local activities or they might provide support networks for minority groups such asÃ‚Â prisoners andÃ‚Â refugees. Often they provide a base for initiatives such as cafes,free shops, publicÃ‚Â computer labs,Ã‚Â graffiti murals, legal collectives and freeÃ‚Â housing for travellers. The services are determined by both the needs of the community in which the social center is based and the skills which the participants have to offer.
Social centers tend to be in large buildings and thus can hostÃ‚Â activist meetings, concerts, bookshops, dance performances andÃ‚Â art exhibitions. Social centres are common in many European cities, sometimes inÃ‚Â squats, sometimes in rented buildings.
