See our new Time Bank Studio Space on our Open Day!
Time4Lambeth is opening a new Studio Space at the Carmelita Centre in Vauxhall, available on Mondays for local people to use to develop their own projects or enterprise ideas.
We’re having an open day and you’re invited!
This Studio is a rentable space with a twist however, as you ‘rent’ this space not by paying in money, but by giving your time to help others in the community.
The Studio Space is run on the principle of Timebanking. The Time Bank Studio Space will cost 1 time credit to use for 1 hour, and is designed to help local residents who have great ideas for community projects, groups, enterprises and businesses but don’t have any space to create them in, and can’t afford to rent a traditional studio. Local people can use the Studio Space for whatever ideas they have that they would like to develop, and can pay for using it by giving their time to help others in the community!
So for example someone might like to use the Studio Space to set up a dance class, and they could ‘rent’ it by giving the same time to help an older resident around the home, or somebody might like to use it as a workshop to make products for their new business, and they could ‘rent’ it by giving time to help out with local volunteering projects. Other members of the Time Bank can also help you grow your project idea by getting involved and co-producing it with you, and can even donate their hours to help pay for the space!
We’re completely open to any ideas local people have who would like to use the Studio Space. There’s really no limit to how people can use the space, so if you’ve got an idea you want to try out please do get in touch, no matter how large or small it is! Our only requirement is that people use the space in ways that benefit the local area and community, so for example using it to set up a community project or a local business.
Time4Lambeth will be hosting an open day at the Studio Space on Tuesday 20th March, from 10am-12pm, with a workshop beginning at 11am. The full address is the Carmelita Centre, 41 Vauxhall Walk, Vauxhall, SE11 5JT.
We’re looking forward to hearing from you and supporting you to develop and grow your ideas!
