Rose Lipman Building
CENTRE FOR CREATIVITY & WELLBEING
The iconic Rose Lipman building, located in the heart of the De Beauvoir Estate, Hackney and is home to a bustling community of creative organisations, each providing a give back to the local and wider community in exchange for affordable rents and hire fees. Since opening the doors in 2013, we have had over 150,000 people through the doors from the local community, all creative industries and all cultural backgrounds.
The building houses a community hall // theatre space that hosts thousands of events and can be hired for private and community events. 20 creative small businesses, resident charities, a fitness and wellbeing studio, a cafe (coming soon) and a nursery. Putting community first, the events program ranges from theatre performances, bingo, drag Christmas carols, dance workshops, live music, art and wellbeing classes and much much more.
The Rose Lipman building is owned by Hackney Council and operated my Mill Co. on a partnership basis.
We’re working on an updated Social Payback Model for the building so that we can show how revenue made from the studios and hall hires, gives back to the program of events and the local community.
Please see our ‘Community Commitment’ section for more info.
The Rose Lipman Building is operated on a Not For Profit basis.
Profit goes back into improving the building and funding events.
