The space rental program is for visual artists, performing artists, musical, and an informal gallery. This space is given at two other locations of Nomadic Press in Oakland. These are:
- 2926 Foothill Boulevard, #1, Oakland, California 94601.
- 2301 Telegraph Avenue, Oakland, California 94612. (Upcoming).
Both of these spaces are open for writers, readers, travelers, artists, and viewers during the open community hours. At the core, Nomadic Press aims to give a platform to writers who are otherwise shadowed by the publishers. It is often the case that the publishers pre-exist the writers and contributors. This shared workspace cum a publishing house aims to alter the status quo. Here the writers and the artists will get an opportunity to represent themselves to the audiences. You can also use the spaces at both of these locations to perform and showcase your art and performances. You can use the informal gallery for an exhibition to put forth your opinion in front of the viewers.

Apart from all this, another amazing aspect of Nomadic Press is its book readings and poetry sessions. You can see in the images how they create a serene and tranquil environment to conduct the sessions. It consists of a closed group of members and individuals who are present in the readings. This gives the writers an opportunity to share their work with others and make connections with like-minded people. All in all, this coworking cum workshop space provides a medium to all the struggling and ignored individuals of society. It gives them a chance and sometimes one chance is all we need to build something, to show our true worth. Happy Coworking!
