MAKE @ Story Garden

A public space for creative collaboration and social innovation


Dear Makers,

In light of the Covid-19 pandemic we are closing MAKE @ Story Garden for the time being and postponing all events scheduled, whilst we work out how best to serve the Somers Town community, keeping MAKE participants, staff and students safe.

This is considering recent government advice about the need to enact strict social distancing measures between people.

The Story Garden will also be closed to the public this week - for more information about the garden please visit @Global Generation.

We will use the coming weeks to plan and implement necessary measures to ensure that when we are able to re-open, we can do so in a safe and responsible way for all the people that use the space.

Thank you for your understanding. For further information and to stay up to date please don’t hesitate to contact us on social media.

Best wishes from the team at MAKE.

Come say hello, and together we will make a better future in Camden

MAKE @ Story Garden is a public space for creative collaboration with, and by, the local community in Somers Town and St Pancras.

Based behind the British Library in Somers Town, MAKE @ Story Garden is a collaboration between Central Saint Martins, Somers Town Community Association, Camden Council and Lendlease. The space is open until autumn 2020, and aims to bring together local communities around a programme of arts activities, projects to address local issues, and skills development.

About the Story Garden

The Story Garden is Global Generation’s newest meanwhile garden; it is built for and by the local community and is a partnership between Global Generation, the British Library, Stanhope and Mitsui Fudosan. The garden is a nature hub bringing people together over food growing, communal meals, shared stories and a range of activities.

Over the course of 2019 and 2020, Central Saint Martins will also be collaborating on projects related to the wider garden, including building a number of new structures.
