What's going on in the Wick? Everything! So let me share it with you. I'm Simon (AKA Hackney Tours). I'm a walking artist, veteran guide and now the first Writer in Residence at Grow, Hackney. I've spent more than a decade here on a deep dive into the alternative subculture that made Hackney Wick so special. And controversial...
If you like East Berlin, if you like street art and warehouse culture you'll love this. if you want to see how the Olympic legacy is going to look, you're in the right place.
On this (all outdoor, distanced) walking conversation you'll be encouraged to ask questions and get involved as we explore this fast changing neighbourhood
I'm an Artivist who has worked tourism for 15 years. A warehouse dweller for a decade, my passion is participatory alternative culture.
Is it an 'antitour'? Who knows? Is it playful and inquisitive? It is!
Obviously you'll get the history and the hidden gems! But on this particular (all outdoor, distanced) walking conversation you'll be encouraged to get involved in the conversation.
As well as getting an in-depth run-down of the local history I'll show you some great street art, some protest art and the hidden stories of an area that I like to a mini East Berlin because of all the things coming out of it.
This is an interactive experience! You are welcome to contribute your own thoughts and ideas and between us we'll co-create something that will be a living part of my ongoing research.
