New arts and events space opens in former Stoke Newington shop

A NEW creative space has opened in Stoke Newington and its founders are looking for local collaborators interested in using it as a studio or gallery.

Community interest company Meanwhile Space has reopened a former shop at 197-199 Stoke Newington High Street to host a programme of exhibitions, workshops and creative events.

It will also provide retail space for East London Furniture, which makes products from recycled pallets found around the capital, and plans to run ‘up-cycling’ workshops in carpentry and practical furniture building skills.

The venture is the latest in a series of projects supported by the Council's Art in Empty Spaces initiative, which transforms empty properties or spaces into something useful and meaningful for Hackney’s residents and visitors.

Jessica Courtney Bennett, Project Manager at Meanwhile Space, said: “Both companies are both extremely excited to be working in an otherwise empty space in Hackney.

"As part of the project we hope to bring something new to this end of Stoke Newington High Street and have a positive impact on the surrounding businesses.”
