The Alternative London Podcast

Alternative London – Culture | Creativity | Community

Welcome to the Alternative London Podcast! A place where we sit down with fascinating people and leaders of institutions that have had an active role in shaping the landscape of East London.

We have been involved in the culture, creativity and community of London’s East End since 2010. Our multi-award winning tours and workshops have delved into the social fabric and creative abundance of this unique area.

As London’s original street art tour & workshop provider we are privileged to have access to many of the artists who have painted in the area over the years. We also engage with the community on a daily basis as the streets are our workplace, so we wanted to share in depth discussions with the people who helped to make our tours a cultural phenomenon.
