Stour Space, that rather pro-actively run artist-friendly space, art gallery, meeting place and more over there smack bang in the middle of all the changes, the social cleansing and destruction of Hackney Wick, are fund-raising. Right now it feels more important than ever that we should have art spaces and community places like Stour Space, here’s what they have to say about it…
” Help to us to secure the future of Stour Space. We need your help NOW to raise £50,000 in a short space of time to secure a longer lease at our much loved Fish Island location. Please help us keep this vital creative community hub open to all and ensure its services can continue to flourish for our neighbourhood and its future. We started this organisation with zero budget and hundreds of amazing volunteers, a feat we are very proud of. Over the last decade we have grown and adapted with our community to the ever changing environment around us, the Olympics on the other side of the water and afterwards the continuing regeneration of this area.
