cSPACE uses the visual arts, media and
cyberspace to support local communities, children and young people
in the expression of their visions, dreams and aspirations around
issues of regeneration. This is done through the production of collective,
collaborative and participatory artworks in and for the public domain.
cSPACE is a charitable company based at the Docklands campus of the University of East London, a meeting point for cultural production, technological innovation and academic research. It developed out of The Art of Change community co-operative following the division of that organisation into separate practices in 2002, and builds on more than two decades of socially engaged practice in East London, including The Art of Change, the Docklands Community Poster Project and East London Health Project. This experience is now applied to the dissemination of opportunities offered by new technologies and the higher education environment within which cSPACE is based, for the benefit of the communities it serves.
