We're delighted to be carrying out creative engagement and community outreach for the Camden Highline as part of the James Corner Field Operations design team. We'll be running a 6 month programme of creative engagement activities to enable local residents to shape and inspire the design of the new linear park in the sky connecting Camden Town with York Way.
Throughout early summer 2021 we've been working with over 50 residents from the London Borough of Redbridge to collaboratively develop an overarching vision and principles for the future of Fairlop Waters in Redbridge. Working closely with our council collaborators we planned and delivered a series of five participatory online sessions with participants ranging from aged 12 to 70+. The vision and principles developed will go on to frame and guide the masterplanning process going forward.
The Barking Bridge Project was initiated by local resident Tim Hunt who wanted to do something about the state of the two footbridges on Essex Road, Barking. Street Space are supporting Tim with additional community engagement and a collaborative bid for funding to transform the footbridges through community-led regeneration in partnership with LBBD and Studio 3 Arts.
We've teamed up with award winning architecture practise If Do to lead community engagement activities for an exciting regeneration project led by Haringey Council and funded by the Mayor of London. Working with young producers based in Tottenham we'll lead a series of creative engagement activities to shape the design of 551b, High Road, Bruce Grove in to a new workspace and community cafe.
Street Space have been commissioned by the London Borough of Redbridge to carry out creative community engagement activities to explore the future of Fairlop Waters Country Park. We'll be listening to existing park lovers as well as seeking out voices and perceptions from people who don't visit the park to start building a collaborative future vision for Fairlop Waters.
