A Petition to Save an Arts Hub in Hackney Wick, London

Words by Carla Ingrasciotta

A group of artists is fighting to stop the demolition of Vittoria Wharf in Hackney Wick.

The London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC), which owns half of the wharf, is to bulldoze the building to make way for a new pedestrian bridge. The wharf is home to many writers, artists and makers who currently rent live-work space at the site on short-term lets. Tenants have been served with eviction notices and must be out by Monday 5 September.
