GROW: Open Studios and Celebration Events

Meet the artists of Grow Studios in Hackney Wick as we open our doors on Sat 9 September. Since 2007, these DIY self-organised repurposed warehouses have provided adaptable and affordable space and a creative home to a community of hundreds or artists, creative practitioners and social entrepreneurs. One of the units is a community canalside venue , GROW, where you expect the usual array of live cultural and community events, with an added twist to help us mark Grow's inclusion in the Open House Festival.
