Hazel Terry took over the lease of the former Clinton’s Card shop in the centre through the Outer Spaces scheme which finds empty shops to lease to artists until more permanent rental agreements can be put in place.

Her exhibition has been displayed in the shop's windows over recent weeks but with a new tenant coming in shortly, her lease is set to end on February 19.

There will be a screening of Estate, a Reverie, a documentary by German filmmaker Andrea Luka Zimmerman which chronicles the lives of her fellow residents on The Brookland Estate in East London. Deemed "unfit for human habitation" it was scheduled for demolition and its tenants gradually moved out elsewhere. Her poetic treatment shows that living isn't just about bricks and mortar but also the social bonds and informal support networks we form in communities.

There will also be a zine workshop led by Hazel where people are invited to make mini-zines based around their experiences of community. Also scheduled are a collage workshop, low cost massage from Lan Beaton at Peak Physique Bodywork, refreshments, space for discussion and more.
