- 'Austin Estate's Band' - A roaming band of instruments made by Austin Estate residents
- 'Wallpaper making workshop' - residents design their own wallpaper
- 'Austin Sewing Club' - first meeting of the new club
- 'Human Chess Game' - with the Hayes Chess Club
- 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.
