Just over a week ago an unused building in East London was occupied
by a group of international artists and activists with the aim of
openning up a new social space. The building has been secured, tided
up and some essential repairs made. The rampart was born.
The Rampart will provide a rampant meeting and workshop
space, free internet access, info shop, community cinema,
vokue/cafe, extensive free shop, art gallery and theatre space...
The building contains a cosy hall in which a stage has been built
and the whole place decorated.

The Ramparts is really close to LARC, Freedom Book, the
Hacklab and a squatted environmental project, and we'll be
avoiding duplicating the stuff they already provide while adding to
the diversity of autonomous projects in the area.

This coming friday (21st), there will be an opening event,
consisting of screenings performance, live music, poetry
slam/open mic in the ramparts hall. If you would like to get
involved on the night, please let us know ASAP. We also hope to
do food but currently don't have cooking tat to cater for large
numbers (we need big pots, and loads of plates/bowls/mugs and

As is usual with such projects, the Rampart urgently needs
people to volunteer some time either on an occasional or a regular
basis so that the building can be open everyday. People are also
welcome to organise events, run workshops etc.

Obviously the place also needs various things;

Tools, Paint, paint brushes, rollers etc.
Curtains, fabric, bedsheets etc, backdrops etc to cover
Carpets, Furniture. especially sofas, chairs (stackable ones would
be great)
Cooking tat: gas hobs/burners, large pots/pans etc. Cutlery,
plates, bowls
A HIFI amplifier, speakers, tape/cd player
vhs vcr, d-v-d player (a projector would be nice).
computers; monitors, keyboards, mice, network cables etc
deadbolts, padlocks, yale locks, mortice locks
toilet roll!

Also welcome: stuff for the free shop - books, clothes etc.

The address of the hall is 7a Rampart Street which is off
Commercial Road and Canon Street (nearest tube Shadwell - bus
routes 15, 100, 115)

Phone us on 07050 618445 (stupidly expensive) or come visit.
