Roman Road Trust and Public Works are inviting local people and organisations to use The Common Room for free and give the space a spring clean at Clean up The Common Room.
The Common Room is an initiative that started in 2014 as part of a collaboration between Roman Road Trust and Public Works. Students from Cass School of Architecture designed and built a small community room from which to operate and were led by Torange Khonsari, Senior Lecturer and Architecture Tutor as well as founder and director of art and architecture practice Public Works. The temporary structure is known as The Common Room and is built on land owned by Clarion housing association. Read more about the project.
The Common Room has been used for many purposes as part of community events. The most well-known of its uses being Santa’s Grotto at the Roman Road Christmas Fair in 2016 & 2017.
The space is suitable for workshops, exhibitions, talk-events, and community meetings.
Roman Road Trust and Public Works are now inviting local people and organisations to run community events/workshops/meet-ups for free in The Common Room to showcase how this space can be used as a community venue. Events would be able to take place until October 2019.
To make sure The Common Room is spic and span and ready for events to happen, Clean up The Common Room will take place on Friday 10th May, 4pm onwards.
If you would like to volunteer at Clean up The Common Room or if you are interested in running an event in The Common Room, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
