27 DINGLEY PLACE
A new home for creative and social entrepreneurs in Islington
27 Dingley Place is a 600 sqm reconverted Victorian School in the heart of Islington / Old Street offering co-working space, events and programmes to catalyst positive local impact. The building is co-designed and operated by Impact Hub Islington, in partnership with Islington Council and local arts group All Change.
In my role as Head of Partnerships at Impact Hub Islington, I led on the business development and co-design process of our property expansion to 27 Dingley Place. This included leading the real estate search, securing a key partnership with Islington Council and its Affordable Workspace Providers Group, and preparing the winning feasibility study and strategic vision. From May to Dec 2016, I led the 6-month multi-stakeholder co-design of the £0.5 M retrofit and continued strategic vision building of 27 Dingley Place.
27 Dingley Place opened in January 2017 and is welcome to creatives, entrepreneurs and organsiations passionated about social impact in Islington.
