Over the past two decades the Hackney Wick and Fish Island areas have together emerged as one of the leading creative and cultural areas in London, with hundreds of artists’ studios, creative businesses of all sectors and new cultural and community venues springing up. At the same time, the area is under significant development land pressure and there is a need to support this economy locally, while ensuring that growth here includes local communities.
We Made That partnered with Tom Fleming Creative Consultancy and Regeneris to develop a Creative Enterprise Zone to provide a game-changing opportunity to support the sustainable and inclusive growth of this important creative district.
Our vision and strategy, mobilised by an unprecedented period of sector and community engagement, is to develop and embed a CEZ that grows in a way that works for everyone. To achieve this Hackney Wick and Fish Island needs to mature, stabilise, diversify and grow to be increasingly impactful – both for local communities and for London as a diverse global creative city.
