Who we are

Gillett Squared is an ongoing partnership committed to proactively creating and enabling cultural events and activity in Gillett Square. 

Hackney Co-operative Developments (HCD), an independent local social enterprise, leads this partnership and provides ongoing support and core resources; a Creative Producer post, a named holder of the Permanent Entertainments Licence, several years' experience of planning and carrying out events and activity, stewardship of the Square's equipment, and links to local organisations and authorities.

To achieve a successful programme, HCD works closely with a number of local businesses (including tenants of HCD), local community groups, cultuarl producers from within Dalston and beyond and London Borough of Hackney

Our work would not be possible without the close co-operative relationships with our many partners, the support of many funders and a wonderful team of vounteers.
