SPACE4 is part of Outlandish, a worker co-op that builds technology  for progressive social causes. We set the space up in 2017 with the aim of building a co-operative, inclusive and anti-capitalist community. 

Since opening, our community has grown from strength to strength, hosting a wide range of events and progressive organisations. In 2018 Founders and Coders, a free and socially-oriented coding school, joined, and continues to be a key anchor tenant to this day.

In 2019 we moved up the road to a bigger and better space, thanks to Islington Council and their support for co-operatives and democratic ownership

Via SPACE4 and projects like Cooperate Islington we’re supporting Community Wealth Building projects, and helping to scale local, ethical supply chains. We helping other organisations like Camden Disability Action to establish meaningful place-based communities, and make the most of their resources. We plan to expand SPACE4 to new locations in London and beyond, and collaborate with like minded folks. 

We’ve learnt a lot on our journey so far, and we are happy to share this knowledge with others.  Get in touch if you’d like to collaborate. 

…when you arrive in this space, it’s obviously the mission and the theme and the nature of the space kind of embody something that I’m very inspired by, a sort of vision for tomorrow. There’s like activism, but there’s also like hope and like trying to build new things, I like that mix. It’s very easy for me to get sucked into doom and gloom. So it’s inspiring to have somewhere like this where you’re like, okay, people are trying to build new ways of working…
