Description

‘I feel like I've talked myself out of the territory. Fresh voices, like yours, are required.’ Iain Sinclair

HWCR shows focus on the area, its people, and the history and changes in the east end; often referring to the area's position at the sharp end of citywide gentrification. Featuring in depth and Vox Pop interviews, musical selections, soundscapes, contemporary and historical narratives they are streamed through www.wickradio.org

The series of broadcasts form an archive of an interesting, mostly accidental, experiment in multi-culture and community living, that has arisen in a former industrial estate in the east end of London, and serve as a reference point for future communities on how to protect themselves from appropriation of their ideas by developers, big finance and property investors.

Shows were recorded and broadcast in The LAB Hackney Wick, a temporary take over, by artists and musicians Pete Bennett and Joel Smith, of the Studio Bark/GROW Eco Pod situated in Main Yard Hackney Wick E9, that presents a modular and sustainable form of architecture that is easily assembled, ecologically friendly and genuinely affordable, in contrast to the millions spent on luxury and 'affordable' buildings in its vicinity.

#3 DAVE PILKINGTON
'The Floating Church' is an interview with trainee Vicar Dave Pilkington, who, based from a wide beam boat moored on the canal at Hackney Wick, describes his plans to set up a neutral and welcoming space for community, debate and reflection; his ideas about the nature of faith and its place in inner city communities... plus his kick ass playlist!HWCR shows focus on the area, its people, and the history and changes in the east end; often referring to the area's position at the sharp end of citywide gentrification.
