THE FUTURE OF THE WICK?
Saturday 10th June @ Stour Space
A full day of workshops, talks, protests, discussions, guided tours, art & live music.
The rapid changes in Hackney Wick and its community seem threatening and unsettling. Is there a future for us, the existing community, in the Wick?
We invite everyone to exchange ideas, to join for a dialogue and to listen to a panel discussion of the ongoing plans and developments—and to gather together for live music and friendly vibes.
Let’s come together, articulate and demand our needs, let’s create our vision of the Wick we want to see in future!
