Spacehive is open to anyone looking to create something amazing within their community but we do have a few guidelines all project makers must follow.

Number 1. Everything on Spacehive must be a project.

A project is something with a clear end, like building a playground, planting a tree, or putting on a festival. A project will eventually be completed, and something tangible will be produced as a result. Success.

Number 2. Projects must be civic.

Projects must have a civic value, meaning the benefit should be felt in the places we share, rather than our private homes and offices. Projects can be permanent (like a new playground) or temporary (like an event) and they can include revenue as well as capital costs.

Number 3. It doesn’t matter who you are.

Creating projects is open to any organisation or person over the age of 18 and based in the UK. If you’re an organisation it doesn’t matter what your legal structure is – for example whether you’re a charity or a for-profit business. Everybody is welcome to get involved.

Are those the only guidelines?

Those are the main three, but below is a list of specific uses of Spacehive that are not allowed.

What is not allowed?

  • Spacehive cannot be used to raise money for causes, whether it’s a charity run for Oxfam or a fundraiser for the work of a local conservation group. Other sites will be better suited to fundraising for these causes.
  • Projects cannot offer equity or financial incentives (share of profits, ownership, the repayment of loans or cash-value equivalents).
  • No offensive projects (e.g. murals with racist content) or projects that promote political or religious ideologies. And keep it clean folks. You know who you are.
  • Projects cannot offer rewards that offer entry to raffles, lotteries, or participation in gambling. That includes Vegas style blackjack to the Village tombola.
  • No projects outside the UK. Yet.
