Wanted: home

We are looking for a working space in Camden or Brixton (or in between) for 2013 – we would ideally prefer a year-long lease but would be interested in a minimum of six months. (Since we pop-up for our events, the last thing we need is to be changing our office every couple of months.)

Our budget is limited so we are probably looking for an in-kind contribution to our project. We are in the process of setting up as a Charity, which may be beneficial to contributors for tax purposes.

Ideally we need space for 2-3 desks and some cabinets for storage. We thought it would be inspiring Рand practical Рto share space with a group working on cycle repair, food or technology.

We primarily need the space as a part-time office space, although we could occasionally use it as a workshop venue if appropriate.

Let us know if you have any ideas about where we might land, either in Camden, Brixton or somewhere in between.

    Try Maiden Lane Community centre, they house the older men’s group ‘the Shed’ , which gets them working on woodwork, repairs, metal, etc. The estate also has a vibrant community garden.
    All the best, Cina

  2. Thanks for that Cina – that might be a good match. We’ll look into it!

    What about approaching a local school? A secondary might be the best bet. It would be great to get young people involved in the restart concept.

  4. Thanks Kathie, great idea. We are currently talking to a couple of educational institutions, no secondary schools yet. Let us know if you have any ideas.

    And thanks to Cina, we have visited Maiden Lane and are very eager to either work there or work with them.

    A pity I didn’t know of your worthwhile activities as I recently disposed of an almost new vacuum cleaner I think could have been repaired (replaced under manufacturer guarantee). Please advertise your good project more widely!

    Do you need a permanent space? if not, Bonnington Centre in Vauxhall supports community ventures . Great project.
