OKR studios crowdfunding campaign: May – August 2016
The Livesey Exchange team ran a crowdfunding campaign ‘OKR studios’ and thanks to 209 individuals, businesses and organisations raised £53,754. The project received the maximum Mayor of London pledge (£20K) and attracted funding from Airbnb and the Southwark Tenant Fund.
Funding raised as part of the crowdfunding campaign will be used to kick-start the project on site and make the garages useable for a programme that requires little infrastructure. Further funding for the construction works will be sourced from additional funders.
For information about the crowdfunding campaign refer to Spacehive.
