I was so pleased to hear over the weekend that Sadiq Khan has chosen New Cross & Deptford to be one of the capital’s first Creative Enterprise Zones. We have a wealth of talent in the area which deserves to be recognised.
More information about the bid:
Shapes Lewisham – Borough of Lewisham (New Cross & Deptford)
- Retaining creative talent from the borough’s education institutions, Goldsmiths and Trinity Laban, and in the local community through access and tailored support for employment and enterprise.
- Increase affordable spaces for the fast-growing creative and digital cluster via Goldsmiths’ Enterprise & Innovation Hub, and opening 80 new artists’ studios by Second Floor Studios/Anthology.
- Embedding development policies within the local plan and business rates, and identifying council’s assets that can help the sector to thrive.
