The ECBN Creative Hubs tour of London finished late on Saturday night. When we are recovered, we will report back properly but for now, here are the headlines.
Day one: Shoreditch and Hackney Wick
The Shoreditch Trusts’ incredible model for creative workspace can help put creative industries at the heart of communities.
Club Workspace have a new model for coworking. Workspace Group house one in fifty creative businesses in the capital, and have shaped the map of London’s creative industries.
Hackney Wick is hard to reach, but worth the trip. The strongest creative community we found on the tour.
Day two: Docklands, North Greenwich and Borough
Ravensbourne’s stunning building shouldn’t mean you overlook their great reputation for linking their start ups with big business.
Don’t squeeze too many people in the lift at the Hospital Club.
Day three: Hub Westminster and the South Bank
Hub Westminster put the social into social enterprise.
Southbank Centre shows how great urban design can create great places where people want to be.
