Time Bank Studio – Open Day!

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!

Time Bank Studio Space - Open Day - Space4Time - Carmelita Centre 5

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.

For more information can be found here, or to inquire about using the space please contact Time4Lambeth Coordinator, David Goslyn, at time4lambeth@pgtimebank.org or on 020 8670 0990.

We’re looking forward to hearing from you and supporting you to develop and grow your ideas!

As Elephant &Castle undergoes a period of significant redevelopment, The People ‘s Bureau, Siobhan Davies Dance, Entelechy Arts are working together with day centres, care homes and community groups in southwark to collate memories and stories.  Time4Southwark appreciates their initiative and support them by developing skills exchange workshops with them once invited.

This monday 25th January, a lot was going on at Elephant ands Castle shopping Centre, dance performances with the free spirited dancers from Entelechy, Yelitza showing how to make beautiful decorations, Luz for reflexology, Rebecca for linoprinting.

For this specific situation, I decided to cisel a sketchbook making workshop as people could draw or write some memories about the Elephant&Castle shoppping Centre.

Buying sketchbooks is fine, but they can be anonymous and expensive. Making your own sketchbooks is a great opportunity to get the creative juices flowing.

There are so many ways to make a sketchbook . You just need some process, tips and advice, some sense of control, decision making and creativity! As a result each created sketchbook has a tangible personality due to the person who made it. That’s the joy. Making a sketchbook allows you to be adventurous.

And a special thank you to the Rockingham Women (Nurun) for their delicious curry and to the People’s Bureau to invite Time4 Southwark
