Streatham Space Project
Set up by a team of Streatham-based arts professionals in June 2018, our aim is to use live events to reach the different corners of our neighbourhood, and bring people together. We’ve hosted events with critically acclaimed artists like David Harewood, Kae Tempest, David Baddiel & Dane Baptiste, hosted events based in Ghanaian, Polish & Yoruba culture, offered support for artists at the beginning of their career and hosted charitable organisations like Age UK, Institute of Imagination and The Prince’s Trust. To date we’ve had over 30,000 visitors through our doors to rehearse, to film, to celebrate, or to experience live theatre, music, comedy or art.
In March 2020 we closed for public events. From May - June we operated as a depot for packages to be delivered to vulnerable people in our area, while streaming hip-hop, spoken word and storytelling content for our audiences. Autumn 2020 saw some socially distanced Theatre and Music - and following another period working on filming, rehearsing and R&D with some incredible creatives in our space (ITV, BBC, theatre and education companies) we’ve invited live audiences back from summer 2021.
