Access Space is the UK’s first free media lab: an open-access learning community where participants learn, create and communicate online. Participation empowers individuals and develops skills, community, creativity and resourcefulness. Access Space focusses on creative engagement, encouraging participants to move from being e-consumers to becoming digital producers. Access Space hosts more than 200 web domains (17000+ online documents) for its participants.  

I conducted this interview with James Wallbank, Director of Access Space in Sheffield, on the first evening of the Open Source City micro festival, hence the music in the background.

James mentions the Grow your own Media Lab graphic novel which should now be available from the Access Space website,

If you are interested in this project and are interested in setting one up in Liverpool then let me know This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
