Presenting cultural events in partnership with the local community and organisations, the Open Source CIC production team works to sustain and develop local wealth beyond purely economic terms. It produces live music and arts, games, sporting and educational activities for all, ensuring that Gillett Square continues to develop as one of London’s most remarkable public spaces.

Gillett Square is a community. Home to independent businesses, coffee drinkers, thinkers, skateboarders, jazz clubs, artists, time travellers, live music and performances, award winning architecture, a radio station, record shops, dreamers, fashion designers, music studios and international delicacies.

This platform recognises the importance of public space and its invaluable role in community life.

Open Source CIC, in partnership with the Vortex Jazz Club, has the license for events on Gillett Square. The Gillett Square programme is managed by a Coordination and Planning group consisting of the London Borough of Hackney, Dalston Studios, Open Source CIC, Hackney Cooperative Developments CIC and the Vortex Jazz Club / Foundation.
