DIY Space For London

DIY Space For London

Who and what we are

DIY Space For London is a cooperatively-run social centre located in South London, just off Old Kent Road. We offer low cost creative facilities, meeting rooms and social space as well as space for screenings, talks and performances. Our in-house record shop Tome Records is Wednesday-Sunday from midday. We run on a members’ club model so that everyone has equal say in how the place is run. The space works to promote the ideas of mutual aid (helping each other) and cooperation (working together). Providing a welcoming space for everyone, including those whose voices and contributions are not always heard or appreciated, is a top priority for us.

We began fundraising in 2012 and raised over £20,000 in donations from all around the world. In Spring 2015 we took on a 3,300sq. foot building in SE15 and renovated it to a fully accessible and safe standard thanks to hundreds of hours of volunteer labour. We opened on 14th September 2015.

To attend or put on events, you need to be a member, which costs £2 a year and can be done in a few minutes online. Members have a say in how the club is run, and there are also lots of opportunities to get involved in the day-to-day running of DSFL by joining a collective, where you’ll get a say in how the space runs and receive training in new skills.
