In 2021 The Showroom and architect Blanca Pujals worked on making a new collective cultural map of the Church Street Ward. This map was commissioned to explore the cultural life in and around Church Street, and was made together with those living and working locally, or with active connections to the neighbourhood.
The aim was to create a collective picture of the cultural fabric, spaces and relationships that are important locally. The new map – which has been commissioned by Westminster City Council and builds upon The Showroom’s long term relationships in the neighbourhood – was designed to highlight spaces, share knowledge and build new networks; reflecting on cooperative models for organising and production whilst exploring the need for shared collective spaces in Church Street.
The discussion workshops were held online at the dates and times below.
