Space Is The Place – side stepping the property ladder

Hi All,

Squat action

This weekend, the rampART is one of several autonomous spaces contributing to ‘Space Is The Place – side stepping the property ladder’ a one-off series of events in London to coincide with the Europe-wide days of action in defence of free spaces and for an anti-capitalist popular culture (

This weekend will also see the launch of the new (currently nameless) social centre in Shoreditch. The space will host an open access art-space, squatters estate agency, free shop, discussions,
skill-sharing and films throughout the weekend. There will also be a benefit gig at the Hackney social centre to raise money for the Advisory Service for Squatters.

Help at rampART on friday, and over the weekend at the new place, would be much appreciated.

London Summary

The weekend starts with a social meetup and info night at the rampART social centre on Friday evening – a cafe with films, presentations, info stalls and some music. There will also be an event at the NOID gallery with acoustic bands and performances.

The art-space, free shop and squatters estate agency, films, workshops and discussions etc will take place saturday and sunday at the newly opened social centre in Shoreditch (address and directions below).
