Please let us know what you can help out with!

Action Plan

For the weekend of 13/14 April.

  • We'll do it firemen's relay style: lots of people in Cremer St load stuff in vans, some people drive, a final group receives & stores things at the new space.
  • Come to Cremer St first, and ask around what needs doing. (Initially we need more people there. We may send a few people to 447.)
  • If you're packing: make sure to prominently label all boxes.
  • As soon as possible start carrying things to the loading bay downstairs, this can start even before any transport is available.
  • If it's not clear what to do: a few people will be around to coordinate, find those people to receive instructions.

A rough outline for temporary storage areas in 447 is here: Hackspace_Move/Logistics

All items with a few exceptions are now at 447 Hackney Road, please come to there to help get our new space into a working state

Before the move

I will bring crates and rigid boxes

Please drop them off at the space, and help find a good place for them (maybe stacked in the quiet room?) Note that they may be in use for 1-2 weeks before we can return them.


  • Marc
  • ...

Other places to source crates:

  • Oskar mentioned http://www.junocrates.co.uk, "It seems it's about £1-4 per week depending on the crate type."
  • we have 15-20 crates in 447, some currently used for books and cabling

I will help packing

This can start even before the first boxes arrive. Make sure to check with others if you pack things that may still be in use.

On Friday 12th: We need 'at least 4 people to help packing if we want to .be ready for Saturday. We have instructions by the entrance. If you don't know what/how to pack: Ask Marc or Charlie.


  • Marc will coordinate Kitchen + electronics (with Mentar). I'll be there until 6pm on Friday.
  • Charles will coordinate the workshop

  • Ruben - will pack the darkroom stuff as soon as practicable
