In partnership with Waltham Forest Council’s Regeneration Team and The University of Westminster, MVP Media are collaborating on a new Community Hub in Leyton. The facility will replace the car park on Stanley Road in Leyton and will house all of MVPs projects and outreach as well as providing a valuable space for the local community.
The Hub will be designed by architectural staff and students from the University of Westminster with the students gaining direct, hands-on experience of the planning and construction process, both enhancing and broadening their range of skills, and developing their confidence through dealing with stakeholders and construction professionals. The project aims to be a beacon of community engagement and promote innovative sustainable architecture.
Besides providing the development and construction costs for the hub courtesy of a grant from the Quintin Hogg Trust, there is the aim for the University of Westminster to have a continuous precedence at the hub.
The main building will be a multi-media space housing state of the art audio/visual equipment. The space will double up as a modern-day workshop and conference space. Activities will be streamed on a big screen providing continuous info/edutainment for the local community and visiting audience.
The hub will house workshops and conferences with technology that will allow remote presenters or attendees to “Zoom” in. Events can be attended digitally providing a COVID secure, cost effective solution attracting a wide reach across all demographics of the community. Solar panels and modern day remote work technology will assist with greener services and allow for many more innovative ways of delivering workshops.
MVP will use the space to deliver relevant workshops, training and events. All events can be streamed and recorded to increase audience reach and engagement. The media content created will include on-demand videos, podcasts, online training/support resources, interactive workshops, digital storytelling, and content initiatives via social media and website platforms.
We would like to thank our partners from the University of Westminster and Waltham Forest Council and look forward to creating an innovative space that will benefit young people and the local community.
