Founded in 2017 by Nicholas Bradfield at his home recording studio, the Rabbit Hole is the result of years of devotional investment into community recreational assets and charitable events. It has since transformed into a fully-fledged maker space, urban farm and community center. Our mission is to provide affordable incubation and coworking space for artists and entrepreneurs in addition to event space and rehearsal/recording space for local bands.
We donate frequently to local non-profit organizations such as Nuci's Space, Athens Land Trust, East Athens Development Authority, The Ark, The Sparrow's Nest, The Boys and Girl Club, Athens Mutual Aid among many others! Our friends and clients include the legendary Wild Rumpus Parade, Creature Comforts Brewing Company, Akademia Brewing, New West Records, Friendship Music and Arts Festival, Seeds of Sound Festival among others. We also offer free community art and music programs including the Full Moon Jam, 'House of the Hidden Hare' Live Studio Sessions, Tie-Dye Workshops, Yoga, Art Therapy, Chess Club, Kirtan/Song Circles, Book Clubs and many more charitable offerings.
We also offer silent disco headphone rentals, bouncy house rentals, entertainment services, festival production, mobile stages!
Nicholas Bradfield was born and raised in Wisconsin until the age of 10 when he moved to Las Vegas with his father. After 2 years there he relocated to Athens, GA where his mother found a job working for UGA's veterinary school. He attended Athens Academy until being expelled in 2011 for the possession of cannabis. He is an alumni of Nuci's Space Camp Amped where he fell in love with the music scene and was inspired to form a band and recording studio which has evolved into the White Rabbit Collective and Rabbit Hole Studios. Nick remains an avid independent journalist and political commentator sharing thought crimes on a daily basis via his Twitter account (follow him here), standing up for principles and causes such as: freedom of speech, freedom of the press, bodily autonomy, the right to privacy, separation of church and State, LGBT rights, political heterodoxy/anti-extremism, natural medicines and ending the failed drug war. Some of his greatest inspirations include Noam Chomski, Chris Hedges, Dr. Cornel West, Matt Taibbi, Glenn Greenwald among others which inform his political activism who identifies as a civil libertarian with slightly socialist-leanings.
