The School of Ideas open to the public for the free sharing of ideas and solutions


The School of Ideas is situated on corner of Bunhill Road and Featherstone Street, Islington EC1Y 8RX in an abandoned school building. It is a space complete with 10 class rooms. We’re open to visitors and guests from 12 noon to 9 pm from Tuesday to Friday and from 10 am to 9 pm on Saturday and Sunday.

It has been opened to the public for the free sharing of ideas and solutions, to help solve the pressing economic, social and environmental challenges globally and locally.

There is also room for community groups and other public services that have lost their space due to Government spending cuts to come and use a space for free.

Artists, performers and creatives are welcome to come entertain and to help transform the space. We also encourage games, workshops and skillshares.

Sharing in ideas or skills for free, no one should need to pay to take part in the School’s activities.

Everyone should feel safe and welcome in the School.  Our Safer Spaces Policy asks people to be mindful and respectful of how their ideas or actions might effect others, and there is a No Smoking, No Alcohol Policy.
As this is a community space we ask everyone to respect the people and the building.
We are a community coming together to find positive solutions to our current crises. We ask all people who come into the space to come in with respect.

Everyone is warmly welcome and encouraged to be part of creating the School of Ideas. Email us with your ideas, suggestions and requests at
