01/ Designing and setting up commercial space
We are plugged into the leading arts organisations in the capital and have c-suite relationships with a lot them. This includes everyone from theatre companies and arts groups to wider representative bodies (e.g. The Arts Council and British Council). We also work with companies and individuals who operate right on the cusp of artistic and cultural development. This is crucial to getting schemes off the ground. We have relationships with senior figures at City Hall and the majority of local London authorities, and also sit on several Arts, Culture and Enterprise boards. These relationships give us insight and valuable contacts. We can also help design and planning aspects. In addition, we have and will continue to secure GLA funding for Meanwhile projects.
We bring local communities and local authorities along with us. We have extremely strong relationships with regeneration team leaders at numerous London boroughs, which is vital in any planning application and ensures genuine community engagement.
We know how to sell projects to the press and the public – we generate a buzz around them. We do everything from traditional press to social media and we know how to craft stories that resonate with different audiences. In addition, we're also branding experts. We know how to give projects identities.
02/ Deliver cultural engagement
We populate buildings with paying tenants, and quickly. We have an extensive network of artists, SMEs and start-ups that are constantly in need of affordable space. We create bespoke environments for our tenants. As well as ensuring an events program which feeds directly into the placemaking strategy.

This is crucial to getting schemes off the ground. We have relationships with senior figures at City Hall who can help us get projects across the line. We can also help design and planning aspects. In addition, we have and will continue to secure GLA funding for projects.
04/ Deliver community engagement
Many of the buildings we activate are not much more than empty shells when we take them on. We know how to split them up and segment them to make them profitable. We work quickly, and with limited costs budgets, to deliver functioning, stylish spaces. If we also take on the commercial spaces that are built as part of final schemes, these final commercial spaces will be built in-line with learnings and insights taken from the meanwhile 'development and discovery' phase.
