High Streets for All in Bexleyheath

21 March 2022

We Made That have been appointed to lead a team to deliver Bexleyheath’s High Streets for All programme. The team includes POoR Collective and Bohemia Place Market, who will be leading on prototyping public realm interventions with local young people and introducing a programme of night markets respectively.

The team’s work will contribute to Bexleyheath’s high street recovery and delivery plan. Our work will be live, dynamic, experimental and will reflect locally-determined priorities. Work will begin with a period of focused engagement and conversations, followed by a vibrant programme of public events and activities later in spring and throughout the summer. Watch this space!

Our team has been working to support high streets and town centres for over a decade. We have been involved with a number of projects at the forefront of current thinking about high street challenges.
