    Centerprise:

    Centerprise was a groundbreaking community centre in Hackney that opened in 1971. It hosted a bookshop, publishing project, reading centre, café, youth club, creche and more all under one roof in Dalston. In the 1970s and 1980s it was not only a place to buy books, it made it possible for local people to write and publish their own works of poetry, autobiography and history.

    From now until June 2016 A Hackney Autobiography: Remembering Centerprise will record and remember the history of Centerprise’s work by recording oral history interviews, gathering a permanent archive about Centerprise and running free workshops and events. 

    Contact us [info@on-the-record.org.uk] if you would like to get involved by:

    On Saturday 24 January 2015 2 - 4 pm come to a relaxed meet up to share your memories of Centerprise at Bishopsgate Institute, 230 Bishopsgate, London EC2M 4QH. Close to Liverpool St Station.

    All welcome. Refreshments provided. Wheelchair accessible venue. Please bring photographs, publications or anything else you’d like to share with others from Centerprise’s past. Please RSVP by emailing info@on-the-record.org.uk
