We are committed to building a network of like-minded organisations and initiatives that are working on different aspects of bringing more creativity and humanity into business and society. 

Over the course of the year, we host a series of small events that bring the knowledge and learnings of the different players in this field into the spotlight, giving everyone a chance to develop their own effectiveness and learn new ways of approaching their shared mission. 

Our annual event is the large gathering in September that hosts all our partners in our extended galaxy over 5 days of experience and engagement, sharing experiences, creating projects and developing our knowledge base together.

Because we believe in our mission, and we are determined to create the world that has more space for creativity and humanity at scale and as soon as possible, we believe in collaboration, not competition. Let's work together, not against each other. There is plenty of work to be done. Let's learn from each other.

We believe that dining needn’t be expensive to be fine. Dalston and its surrounding districts boast some of the best Caribbean, Polish, Vietnamese, and Turkish food in London, and all at affordable prices. Those looking for a more posh vibe will be happy to know that our neighborhood also offers restaurants headed by some of the most world-renowned chefs, like Hunter Fisher of Thornberry.



The Hackney borough, of which Dalston belongs, has it all—from bespoke boutiques that feature independent designers to thrift stores and craft fairs full of one-of-a-kind finds. This is where rising fashion stars like Mara Bond got their start, taking inspiration from the dynamic culture of East London. No matter what store you go to, you’ll find products that you couldn’t get anywhere else.

Dalston nightlife is top-notch. You can watch the latest game while you enjoy UK staples like Nameless Beer, Demo Ale, and Filler Stout. Or try some small-batch beers crafted by local breweries. If cocktails are your preferred poison, trendy mixology establishments, complete with plush couches and date night lighting, are peppered throughout East London.


turn club

Whether you’re looking for an intimate jazz club, large music hall experience, disco with a killer DJ, or eclectic music festival, Dalston has it. Some of the most fun and innovative bands, artists, and musicians flock to our district for its creative energy and diverse music scene. Take the opportunity to experience it all up close and personal. We promise you won’t regret it.
