On Friday 1st July we will be celebrating the launch of Spare Street – A New Street Dedicated to Creative Enterprise in Southwark.
Here Hotel Elephant will create workspace for 80 – 100 emerging artists and creative entrepreneurs, along with a public space and cafe, which will host our program of exhibitions and events.
Spare Street has been named by Hotel Elephant after the artist Austin Osman Spare who lived, worked and exhibited in the area from the early 1900’s until his death in 1956. This forms part of a project from Southwark Council and Network Rail to bring unused railway arches back into use. Hotel Elephant has secured funding for the project from Mayor of London through the London Regeneration Fund and from Southwark Council’s Arts and Culture Grant fund.
Join us in our new public space for the first chance to preview this exciting new project. We will be exhibiting work by our Artists and Makers along with an archive of our past events.
