A socially minded organisation offering exhibition, performance and studio space for the development of creative enterprises. Devoted to the promotion and production of art and design, performance and innovative business, Stour Space also works in collaboration with many local enterprises, residents, artists and committees.
Stour Space was once a disused, unsafe building, and through the intuition and motivation of the local community it has blossomed into a multi-functional venue, that can service a large variety of needs: Now boasting over 40 studio tenants, art SHOP, a 2000 sqft open plan gallery space, 20+ local grassroots programmes on site, a multi-purpose function space with Olympic views and a popular café, Stour Space has become a hive for local participation, business development, and niche recreation.
The organisation is focused on multi-functionality in order to provide affordable studio and meeting space to creative businesses and self-employed artists/producers, emergent practitioners, designers and entrepreneurs. Stour Space promotes the capacity for the creative sector to be a valuable and important contribution to the modern economy – recognising the weight of skill sharing, collaboration and grass routes initiatives.
On-site studios are part subsidised by both corporate and private hire activities, use of the meeting/project space and consultancy, to ensure a large number of people can make use of the previously abandoned building, and affordably grow their own enterprises. Similarly, charitable and educational groups are offered substantial discounts when hiring Stour Space ensuring accessible and equal access for all.
Stour Space holds monthly exhibitions (free for local artists), regular markets and workshops, whilst also promoting the positive capacity of the creative sector through ongoing consultancy and lobbying with local government and public development initiatives.
Not reliant on government funding, the organisation does not make a financial profit, instead choosing to pour any monies back into improving its services and maintaining the venue. Yet through collaborative use and broad accessibility Stour space is supported and enhanced by a multitude of individuals, businesses and initiatives, ensuring ongoing sustainability and a positive momentum.

Counter is an Independent, canal-side cafe located in Stour Space gallery, Hackney Wick”.
OUR HUMBLE HISTORY...
We first launched The Counter Café in January 2009 at 4a Roach Road and started out as a small local eatery for the once quiet neighbourhood of Fish Island in Hackney Wick. We fast became a hub for locals and developed a dedicated following, so we outgrew our original location and relocated two doors down into Stour Space, a local gallery, in May 2011.
Now located just 100 metres from the Olympic main stadium, we are one of the few independent businesses operating in the Olympic shadow. Upstairs seating and a large outdoor terrace on the River Lea offer unparalleled views of the park, making us a key destination for Olympic enthusiasts or anyone wanting to relax in the sun by the canal.
Run by a brother and sister duo who originally hail from New Zealand, The Counter has a distinct antipodean feel, focusing on quality coffee and fresh homemade food, including the our renowned pies!

Craft Guerrilla is a grass roots collective and social enterprise born in 2008 out of a love of hand made, craft and a conscience!
We believe craft can change the world through the promotion and education of the masses, through craftivism (craft + activism = craftivism), supplying a realistic platform to empower designer makers to create a viable commercial identity and a brand which will allow them to make a living and compete with the High street! We also believe that all workers should be paid fairly not just the artisans!
Our primary purpose is to promote the positives of making both as a viable business but also as a therapy and to bring awareness to the consumer not just through offering high quality and original hand made goods but also through campaigning and education.
We also host craft markets and creative events including press junkets, hen parties, birthdays etc as well as that we also host DIY craft nights, crafternoons and workshops for private and public hire. Get in touch if you'd like to know more or read our manifesto on the CG website!
491 Gallery Distance: 1.5 miTourist Information 491 Grove Green Road London, United Kingdom E11 4AA
The 491 Gallery is a social centre and multi-disciplinary gallery in in Leytonstone, London, England. Taking its name from its street number, 491 Grove Green Road, the former factory is now home to a community-led art organisation and serves as a constant exhibition space for a diverse range of artists of different origins working in varied media. It contains a range of art and music studios, which are used to host workshops, classes and musical rehearsals.
Following the closure of its original business, the building was used as a storage space and warehouse for materials being used to construct the A12 road that cuts through Leytonstone and the surrounding areas. Unlike the rest of the surrounding buildings, it and the few neighbouring houses were not subject to compulsory purchase orders and demolition for the A12 site. When in late 2000 the building was abandoned, it became occupied by a group of homeless drug users, who remained in it for some six months. Within a month of their vacating the premises, the building was reoccupied by a group of artists, who spent the next several years turning it into a vibrant community space. Along with its neighbouring building, Vertigo — named after the eponymous film by Alfred Hitchcock, a former Leytonstone resident — the 491 Gallery is currently one of the longest running organisations of its kind.
