Needless to say, Euston is undergoing a period of drastic change at the moment. The good news is that the community are bandying together, so as to continue with business as usual, and come up with innovative ways to help the area thrive.
One such project is Euston Town’s Make Space, which uses artistic installations to establish a continuing sense of identity and place. By creating cultural events in temporary or ‘meanwhile’ spaces – be it a vacant retail unit, exposed wall or venue – the team hope to drive footfall and support the local economy.
Recently Regent’s Place hosted Make Space’s launch project, Hope For Tomorrow. Inside our new issue of Eustontowner, out today, we celebrate an event that brought together academics, artists and social campaigners. Plus, of course, residents.
Elsewhere, we chat to the young people behind the Future Changemakers project, meet the artistic director at the New Diorama Theatre and find out what Humans Of Camden is all about. We even try the Wellcome Collection for dinner, and enjoy a Sichuan lunch at Chalton Street’s Red ‘n’ Hot. Join us inside.
