Hi Roulla - thanks for the note, sounds really interesting.
There are various tools we've developed to help people find their own spaces and you can find our more about our work here www.meanwhilespace.com or about the national Meanwhile Project which we deliver to promote the concept here www.meanwhile.org.uk. There are loads of resources on the Meanwhile Project website such as toolkits, leases, guides etc there.
If you can find the name of a landlord, it is worth pulling together a 2 page proposal for using the space, keep it as professional as possible and highlight the benefits to him (have a look at the benefits doc). Make it easy for him to say yes: give information on your experience so far, say you can design it, draw up leases (available on the meanwhile project website) etc, who you will market to, how often it will be open, and who will be responsible.
I'm flat out at the moment but if you take a look at all that and get back to me with any qu's (emily firstname.lastname@example.org is probably the best option) I'll do what I can to help out.
