Community

Our campus is designed to foster vibrant innovation communities – with rich event programmes, fantastic facilities and stellar spaces.

The Community and Events team is standing by ready to help you get the most out of everything on offer – whether it’s hooking up with like-minded businesses, or getting your teeth into street food. It’s a packed schedule every week in our event spaces.

And, when our landmark Refinery Building opens, you and your team will have access to the ARC Club; a members lounge providing an extension of your working environment with break-out spaces, a cafe, bookable meeting rooms and event spaces.

ARC West London Community Manager

Crisi Volpini

“Most of my time is spent ensuring our members are happy, a typical day would include greeting visitors and members as they arrive, planning and organising events and activities to ensure there is the opportunity for everyone to have a fulfilling work-life balance. I love taking a walk around the campus and chatting with everyone who works with us. My role allows me to use my skills to produce content for the community app and social media platforms and organise great events.

 

I recently got married which was the best days of my life so far. I am currently studying for a bachelor’s degree in marketing. I also enjoy cooking and going for long walks with my dog.”
