Help Shape Use of Hackney Green Space

From our friends at Hackney Council…..

Dear Partners,

We are holding an interactive immersive gallery event, where we will be showcasing the ‘white cubes’ which have been placed in parks across Shoreditch to capture the views of community and businesses about their green open space. Our aim is to facilitate businesses and communities working together to create a better vision for future use of green space. We’re calling all businesses to come and see how they can get more involved in using green space, whether it’s holding events in parks, or wanting bookable meeting spaces. We want your ideas.

The event provides the opportunity to:
– view the cube installations
– join for drinks and refreshments
– hear inspirational speakers (including ITN Project Manager from previous ‘Nike’ Park Project)
– contribute ideas, and network with other business

The event will take place on the 13th November in Lyst Studios on Hoxton Square. We look forward to seeing you then.

Please RSVP by booking a free place here: <;

All the best,

Ending Soon: Flowers Gallery “Dust“ Exhibition

Running until 11 October at Flowers Gallery on Kingsland Road in Shoreditch is the fascinating exhibition “Dust”.

Rooted in an interest in the ‘aesthetics of destruction,’ Nadav Kander’s most recent project Dust explores the vestiges of the Cold War through the radioactive ruins of secret cities on the border between Kazakhstan and Russia.

According to the Guardian: “These sublimely beautiful ruins are haunted and haunting, derelict monuments to a long winter of mutual enmity between Russia and the west that, of late, no longer seems so distant or, indeed, unreal.”

Read more about the artist here.

Where:   82 Kingsland Road, London E2 8DP

When:  Through 11 October.  There will be a special exhibition viewing with refreshments on Saturday 4th of October.
