Meanwhile spaces...

Reading a while back about the growth of "meanwhile spaces".

These are on the High Street, and occupy empty shops for a short period of time.

They are offered to creative people.

They are also known as "pop-up shops" if they are for retail use.

Definition:

“meanwhile space” – the use of temporary contracts that allow community groups, small businesses or individuals to move into these vacant spaces and set up shop, on the understanding that they will leave within an allotted time.
