Start up spaces – Unlocking the potential of underused sites

Date & Time:November 28, 2019 2:30 pm

How could universities make use of spaces and places that don’t fit anymore? What can be learned from urban projects that fill empty space with entrepreneurs, artists, makers and other talented people who are just starting out? Architects Turner Works will take you on a tour of two key projects in Peckham. At Peckham Levels, working with social entrepreneur MakeShift, we kick-started the transformation of an underused urban space into affordable start-up spaces for artists, makers and local people to work, learn and play in. At Mountview we created a ‘warehouse for the arts’ – a drama school by day, a community space by night and a venue for the performing arts.

Come and see the buildings for yourself and join our discussion on what happens to space when you think like a start-up.

Draft schedule:

– 2.30 to 3.15 tour of Peckham Levels
– 3.15 to 3.30 walk to Mountview
– 3.30 to 4.15 tour of Mountview
– 4.15 to 4.45 coffee and discussion at Mountview (Peckham Room).

Suzi Winstanley (Turner Works) – Director, Chair/organiser of event
Matthew Turnbull (Mountview) – Commercial Director
Khloe Bailey Obazee (Makeshift – Manger at Peckham Levels)
