Need a space to make a living, make something beautiful, or make a difference?

Have you had difficulty finding an appropriate, available and affordable space to host professional, educational or personal events in Fort Mill? Do you want to teach classes, host meetups, or gather like-minded locals but you haven't been able to figure out where?

As we (LOOM Coworking, Gallery and Event Space) approach our one year anniversary, we are assessing how well we are serving the event space needs of the greater Fort Mill community. We have so enjoyed hosting such a wide array of classes, parties, meetings, and arts events and want to make sure we are evolving with the changing needs of local independent professionals and community members.

If you will, we would appreciate you taking a brief moment to help us gather some information to help us help Fort Mill! 
Do it anonymously or leave us your email if you would be willing and interested in providing us with more info or participating in further discussions.

If you wear multiple hats or work with multiple organizations, feel free to fill out the survey twice.
Thank you!
