Delivered by Creative Wick
In 2020, we are supporting the “The Wick Magazine” project by Creative Wick through our Connecting People and Places funding, co-funded by Foundation for Future London and City of London.
“The Wick Magazine” is a collaborative project between Creative Wick, Foundation for Future London and TheLococo, based in Hackney.
We awarded “The Wick Magazine” project a grant as it meets many of Connecting People and Places’s themes and priorities including place-making, training, participation and engagement.
The Wick Magazine is a 16-page print and digital pilot edition of The Wick, Hackney Wick and Fish Island’s first regular local community magazine title, paving the way towards full launch later in 2020. Creative Wick will be recruiting a team of local contributors, designers, print and distribution logistics operators, plus continue to establish ongoing working relationships between the local residential, creative and business communities and the East Bank partners. The Wick aims to celebrate the best of the area via quality editorial storytelling, fostering closer ties between everyone working, living and playing here in the process.
