After years in educational tourism I fell in love with Hackney. I wanted to share all the brilliant stuff I found off the mainstream tourist path.
So I started offering alternative and experimental/experiential tours in 2012, trying to do something different with them. The aim was to provide something useful, something fun but with a purpose, like:
Connecting people to their surroundings on a deeper level; rediscovering local wonder in the age of climate change; to be happier and more rooted people, closer to home. This is even more relevant in the flight-free time of the Corona Virus.
Celebrating and amplifying the wonderful wave of social enterprises and sustainability pioneers offering local East London solutions to global issues.
Remembering the stories of the radicals and reformers who made Hackney what it is today, joining the dots to contemporary changemakers.
Facilitating difficult conversations, like the discussion about gentrification and who East London is for as it changes.
Getting out in the world and connecting to it to be as fully in it as possible! Revolutions you can dance to…
Championing the local indie businesses that make East London so interesting.
