Every Monday night at Open Project Night something seismic happens that shapes the future of Lambeth. That shapes the money you have, the food you eat, the energy you use, the house you live in, the places you work…

What problems would you want to fix in your area?

Open Project Night is a free incubator for good ideas that change the face of Lambeth. At Open Project Night you can..

  • host events
  • trade skills
  • network
  • work together 
  • find mentors
  • find inspiration
  • get feedback on ideas
..all with support from experienced connectors and facilitators.

Open Project Night happens every Monday night at Impact Hub Brixton from 6.30 – 10.30pm.

It's free to attend – just bring something edible for the table!

"I came along with an idea – and had energy, contacts and a plan by the end of the night"

Rachel and her friend Emmanuel met to discuss an idea, Make Our Money Matter (MOMM). Open Project Night was the first time they’d met to discuss the idea and they agreed went well.

Emmanuel said, “it’s a black consumer and business empowerment network. The idea is to help strengthen and build the paid black economy and create sustainability within the black community – to use consumerism for change.”

There were skills sharing workshops, fundraising support, people looking to change careers...

“I’m Noel,” says a friendly man to the 15 or so people around him. “I’m the facilitator here tonight. I’d like to start with a quick check-in on how everyone’s doing. I want people to arrive here excited and leave even more excited.”

Hubber Mahalia discussed her Echo skills sharing workshops, while Adrienne mentioned her West London urban growing project, Cultivate London. There were some who specialised in fundraising, others who ran community gardening projects…

Book a meeting space

For small or open meetings (up to 6 people), just show up. We'll have space for you in our shared workspace.

For larger or private meetings, we have limited spaces available. A brief selection process lets us make sure we're fair in our support.

We have 3 bookable spaces:

 

  • Middle floor space: 25 people
  • The Container: 15 people
  • The Gallery: 8 people
View our spaces here.

 

To apply, fill out this small application form.

We assess applications according to these 5 criteria:

  1. events and meetings that benefit Lambeth
  2. events and meetings that increase the diversity of Open Project Nights
  3. events and meetings that might not otherwise be able to afford or access the Hub spaces
  4. events and meetings that have a high impact on their attendees
  5. events and meetings by groups who haven't used Open Project Night spaces before (ie. if you've made use of the spaces frequently, others may be considered first)
  6.  

We are unlikely to give preference to paid events, unless there's a good case for them.

Deadline: Your request for the space must be with us at least 14 days before your event or meeting date. So if your event or meeting is on the 15th of the month, you must have filled out the Google form by the 1st.
