Lab building on Mare Street

SPACE is consulting with artists, makers, technologists, learners, Hackney enthusiasts, London enthusiasts, and anyone else who is just enthusiastic to come and build our new community art lab on Mare street in Hackney.

The shared ideas generated will all contribute to the creation a venue that the community wants to use, and in creating a rewarding community to be a part of.

Open art lab members will get to meet, work with and learn from some of the best makers, technologists and artists in the area to build something tangible.

Below is a brief introduction to SPACE's new Art and Technology Manager Josh Dale, who will be overseeing the project as it develops.

Hi I'm Josh. I am lucky enough to have been brought in to build a series of labs in SPACE HQ.
I guess I am a lab builder by trade, having built innovation labs in London and New York and now Hackney.

What is a lab? Well, it is a space that combines technology, real world experiences and people. I will be programming art technology themed events in the new lab at the front of Mare Street HQ and coordinating a collaborative workspace called CoLAB.

Look out for a new programme of art tech workshops, debates and tons of other content on the SPACE website.

I hope you will all come and say 'hi' in the near future.
