ECHO SOCIAL // BUILDING THE FUTURE

Get together with a bunch of brilliant people, entrepreneurs, creatives and East London independent businesses for an evening of sparking ideas and connections, at Grow Hackney - an independent canal side bar, kitchen and creative space in Hackney Wick.

This time, our theme is Building the Future. We'll be uncovering London's vibrant DIY culture - people and projects building the future they want to see, often in the face of change and challenge. 

Come and be inspired by guest speakers shaking up their industries - from tool libraries, to community spaces, to peer-to-peer education. 

There’ll be space for you to spark ideas and connections, and tap into the skills and networks you need to bring your ideas to life. Plus all the usual Echo Social fun, food, drink and conversation. 

Come join us for...

• Grow's carefully selected range drinks
• Delicious grub from some of our Echo++ foodie alumni
• Curated connections with Echo members old and new
• Inspiring short talks designed to get you thinking

It's free to attend and all are welcome - so go on, grab yourself a ticket. You never know who you might meet!

***

Echo is a marketplace without money, where East London people and businesses can trade anything from graphic design and business advice to accountancy and bike fixing, without using money.

Instead, we use a currency called Echoes, where 1 Echo = 1 hour. With 5000+ members, Echo is a thriving network for connecting, collaborating and sharing resources.

It’s free to join at economyofhours.com. Yay!

Join Boris Latinov on guitar, Jamie Murray on drums, Rio Kai on double bass and Tamás Gyurcsó on sax plus special guests for this intimate jazz jam with 2 sets and DJ Jazzintime spinning vinyl in between. 

These musicians bring you a fresh and energetic approach to mainly a hardbop jazz repertoire with jazz classics and their own compositions. And for those musicians out there, you can join them on stage to jam. 

From the bar, we have speakeasy cocktails, craft and organic drinks. In the kitchen, we have Slow Fire London whose menu is inspired by middle eastern flavours combined with the best of British seasonal ingredients with BBQ and sharing mezes at it's heart. The meat is British and hand selected from Smithfields market, as is the produce from New Spitalfields market. The menu includes vegetarian and vegan options. Slow Fire London sources locally and sustainably wherever possible and the menu is freshly prepared. They are also committed to 100% compostable cutlery and crockery.
