One Hoe Street is a space where you can discover more about the London Borough of Culture programme, share ideas, and network.

The building is a space for conversation, networking, arts installations and workshops. It is a dynamically changing space, which will reflect the scale and ambition of the London Borough of Culture year.

One Hoe street sits on an intersection, a cross roads connecting different parts of the borough together – and this is what we want to happen with the meeting of peoples.
