Laura Wellington and James Abbott Donnelly founded Duke Studios in 2011 with an extraordinary, two fold vision. First, to build an inspiring, exciting and inclusive Coworking space in which creative individuals across different sectors could work. Second, to turn this space into a creative hub in order to facilitate knowledge exchange, encourage networking and spark collaboration on joint projects with the aim of nurturing talent and watching it grow.
