198 was established as a social space for the Black community following the Brixton uprisings of the 1980’s. Community is at the heart of what we do and we engage local residents through various activities such as a weekly arts and crafts club and Tai Chi as well as providing opportunities for participation through volunteering.
We provide space for tenants and residents meetings, community events and offer affordable hire space for local groups and individuals. We also have strong relationships with local schools and community groups offering workshops and guided tours of our exhibitions.

Current Community Activities:

  • Arts & Crafts social club

Every Tuesday 1:00pm – 4:00pm

Anyone is welcome to attend

  • Tai Chi

Every Tuesday 6:00pm – 8:00pm

Anyone is welcome to attend
