ABOUT

Who are we?

Are you an artist? A writer? Musician? Someone looking for a quiet place to work or relax? Are you looking for gallery space? Assistance with that website that you keep fighting with? How about a recording studio? Social Media assistance? Someone to decipher that business jargon so you can move on with your work?

Right, that’s a lot of questions. Like, far more than we have a right to ask. But we might be the answer to any one of those questions. The Lamplighters isn’t just a creative workspace in the sense of a co-working space where one can rest one’s feet and get down to the nitty gritty. We’re also there to help you with that nitty gritty. As a business and space, our number one goal is to help you grow into your goals, whether that be as a hobbyist who wants to get better at drawing, a new professional who needs help with branding, or a seasoned artist who wants to work with the community. We have a recording booth for musicians, desks for office space, a resource library and staff ready to help with a myriad of subjects.
