In August of last year we made a short film telling you about Industri[us] and our Festival of Upcycling in Canning Town… we thought it was about time we share it with you!
Moira Lascelles from the Architecture Foundation will present her recent research commissioned by the London Legacy Development Corporation which examines a selection of national and international creative re-use case studies, including Industri[us].
The research assembles a series of lessons learnt to inform the potential creation of a Materials Reuse Centre in East London on an interim use site. This facility would potentially aid the construction of future meanwhile projects on or around the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and also offer building materials and components for sale to the wider public for reuse.
For further information on the event, including details on the other speakers, see R-urban Wick.
If you didn’t make it along to the Wick Session on recycling and reclaiming materials, you can read all about it in Colin Priest’s article in the WickZine.
The Wick Sessions are hosting a second evening of presentations exploring fabrication with recycled and reclaimed materials.
The evening session brings together people working in the field of sustainability and those reworking recycled materials. Industri[us] is looking forward to be taking part in this evening of discussion hosted by Public Works. Find out more about the event here.
Over the summer, Industri[us] staged the ‘Festival of Upcycling’ in Canning Town… we thought we’d share some of the highlights with you!
Following on from the success of last weeks amazing Communicators gig, we are staging another great line up of bands this weekend at Canning Town.
We open Friday evening from 4pm with our fabulous ‘Upcyclers’ displaying and selling their beautiful products, our exhibition ‘Uplifting Choices’ showcasing the very best of upcycling and sustainable design, wonderful food stalls, the fab Dorset Cider House crew offering incredible British Ale and Cider, and not forgetting out headliner ‘The Kings of the City’ and support acts from 7.30pm. Check out their music now on SoundCloud.
It will be free to enter the site before 7pm with a request you pay a nominal fee of £2 after this time to support our project. OAPs and children under 12 will be free at all times.
There will be more live music on Saturday evening also with gates opening at 1pm that day.
Hope to see you there!

We are so proud to have our first major gig on the Industri[us] site be such a big one. We are delighted to welcome one of Britain’s best SKA bands The Communicators to play on Friday night.
Just imagine the legendary band playing with the background of our fantastic structure above, you sitting back drinking quality Real Ale and Real Cider from the Dorset Cider House, enjoying the fantastic street food on offer with the Urban Feasts street food, brushing up on the authentic East London history with the Cockney Museum and enjoying Pie&Mash whose recipe has been unaltered for over 100 years all whilst marvelling at the fact that everything on site is either on loan by one of our kind supporters, has been saved from the landfill or has gained a new lease of life due to the ingenuity of one of partners.
