DIY Space For London is a cooperatively-run social centre located in South London, just off Old Kent Road. We offer low cost creative facilities, meeting rooms and social space as well as space for screenings, talks and performances. We run on a members’ club model so that everyone has equal say in how the place is run. The space works to promote the ideas of mutual aid (helping each other) and cooperation (working together).

People need new tools to work with rather than tools that ‘work' for them. They need technology to make the most of the energy and imagination each has, rather than more well-programmed energy slaves."
