V22 View Tube
V22 are taking on a very exciting site in Hackney Wick and we would like to offer local artists, creatives, entrepreneurs and freelancers the opportunity of viewing it and seeing if it could work for you.
The View Tube was built for the Olympics. Poplar HARCA have since taken it on and want to keep running it as a small community of makers, gardeners, a café, bike hire and an events space. They have asked us to take over some of the containers and refashion them as maker/show spaces.
These spaces would be ideal for makers who also wanted to open their space occasionally as a show-space and possibly sell their work from their studio. It would not have to be your main studio and could be taken on as an addition to a workshop.
However, it could not be just a show-space – we want people to be working at the site and be a real part of the community. We will consider sharers if a number of makers wanted to share a show-space, but at least one person also needs to work on site.
If you are interested please email firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘View Tube’ in the title.
Please tell us a bit about your practice and how you might like to use the space. You will then be invited to a viewing.
