Mayor of London awards us £50,000 to develop a creative enterprise zone in New Cross and Deptford

Published on 21 March 2018

​We have been awarded £50,000 by the Mayor of London to help set up a creative enterprise zone in New Cross and Deptford.

Creative enterprise zones are a new ground-breaking initiative from the Mayor of London to help artists put down roots and establish themselves in London.

We will use the grant to fund detailed work, including research studies, which will help prepare us to create an area where artists and creative talent can thrive.

A recently-commissioned creative and digital industry study found employment in this field in the borough had grown by 71% over the last five years, which is twice as high as the London average (34%).

We are leading the creation of the creative enterprise zone, which is backed by over 15 organisations in Lewisham including:

  • Goldsmiths, University of London
  • SE Chamber of Commerce
  • the Albany
  • Deptford X
  • Horniman Museum and Gardens
  • ACME
  • Muse Development Ltd
  • Bellway Homes
  • Hutchinson Property Group (UK) Ltd 
  • U&I Group Plc.
