  • 'Austin Estate's Band' - A roaming band of instruments made by Austin Estate residents
  • 'Austin's Jukebox' - Record requests will be collected to play on Hayes FM 
  • 'Austin's Noticeboard' - A physical and virtual noticeboard for the Austin Community
  • 'Mobile Storytelling' - with Hayes Library
  • 'Gardening Workshop' - with a gardening expert
  • 'Photographer's Studio' - Portraits of Austin Residents

These events inform the brief for the a new community space on the Austin Estate, to be designed by Architecture Studio 3 next Semester.

The events are being held jointly with Hillingdon Play Association, and have been funded by a Hillingdon Community Trust grant.

Studio 3 is the Live Projects Studio, this year continuing work in Hayes on the Austin Estate. 

The events form part of a series which started last academic year.
