Make Space: a creative takeover of art, workshops and events


Head to this three-week pop-up in Regent’s Place for exhibitions, performances and workshops to uplift the local area



As we all know, Euston is undergoing a period of drastic change. As such, Euston Town’s latest project Make Space hopes to use artistic installations – in the form of exhibitions, performances and workshops – to help to establish a continuing sense of place and identity in the area.

By injecting cultural events in meanwhile spaces – be it a vacant retail space, an exposed wall or a temporary events venue – they hope to drive footfall and support the local economy, whilst uplifting outsider perceptions for the area.

Regent’s Place, Euston’s busy work and social hub, will host Make Space’s launch project, Hope for Tomorrow. The three-week series of events brings together artists, academics, social campaigners and experts to explore contemporary issues though exhibitions, panels and workshops. Themes include gender equality, displacement, identity, technology, climate change and homelessness.

Works include a photography exhibition by award-winning humanitarian photographer Emma Brown, who brings a selection of their work with refugees in West Saharan refugee camps. Adelaide Damoa,h a painter and performance artist, uses body-printing techniques combined with text and photographs to tell feminist stories of the past and present. Plus Azekel, a Nigerian born multidisciplinary recording artist, and frequent collaborator of Massive Attack working across genres and platforms, is producing audiovisual experiences.

Each event looks to inspire us to re-imagine how our future cities might adapt and take shape. All stakeholders from the local community are invited to take part and contribute to the on-going discussions, enjoy new mediums of art and use their voices to help to shape the future of our city.

The launch is on Wednesday 13th March: expect a fun evening of performances from the Streetwise Orchestra (main picture, above), delicious snacks from Drummond Street, booze from Camden Town Brewery and, of course, the artists’ work.
