Here East is London’s home for making, located at the heart of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London.
Already home to the likes of BT Sport, it also seems to be becoming the stomping ground for our new generation of makers and innovators, who are disrupting the old ways of thinking and doing, to give us all a brighter and better future! We have a big appreciation for this emerging breed of challengers and creators and so… we have decided to start sharing Here East’s #MakerMonday posts with you each week. In other words we’re going to give you some much needed inspiration every Monday (which we all need…) through these weekly interviews, which explore different east Londoners and their weird, wacky and wonderful ideas to change our way of living!
This week we present to you ….
