NODE.London nodes (event hosts) are drawn from a geographically dispersed and diverse range of London-based arts groups/venues: alternative, independent, publicly funded and commercial. They are playing an active and dynamic role throughout the March 2021 NODE.London season.
Albany Digital @ The Albany
The Albany is a purpose-built performing and digital arts centre, with a strong focus on working with its diverse local communities. It is a venue for a range of culturally diverse performing arts, a new digital arts facility and a range of educational, training and community projects. Resident at the Albany are three of the UK’s most significant disability arts organisations (Heart n’ Soul, Entelechy, and Drake Music); one of UK’s leading black British dance companies IRIE!; as well as the Art of Regeneration, a project of the Royal National Theatre’s Education Department, and a number of smaller arts and community organisations.
Albany Digital offers free wireless internet access in the café and a 24-track ProTools studio, an edit suite, cameras and laptops. Albany Digital is a comprehensive resource offering project-based support, flexible training for adults and professional hire facilities. Partnership projects include sound junction, a ground-breaking music education initiative commissioned as part of Culture Online.
Area10 is an artist-led initiative working from the vast premises of Eagle Wharf in Peckham Square, behind the landmark of Peckham Library. In 2002, the derelict premises were given by Southwark Council to a group of artists for temporary use for arts based works and events.
Area10 was set up as an artist-led project, self-organising, self-curating and self-funding. Area10 has had a very organic and experimental structure as the project has always been deemed temporary. Three years down the line, Area10 has generated an extensive number and range of public events, which is exemplary of an experimental, cross-disciplinary and collaborative arts practice.
Area10 is currently undergoing structural changes and will re-launch itself as part of the NODE.London season. Area10 will continue artist-led enquiry, artform cross-pollination, experimentation, new media, collaboration between artists, organisations, groups and communities and advance the notions of Area10 at its inception.

Boundless Coop @ Gifspace, Giffin Business Centre
BOUNDLESS is the broadband co-op established during 2004 to support community development of fast local internet access, inter-linking residential, business, educational, cultural and digital media communities.
The first mesh nodes of the network have been installed in Deptford, South East London, where community interest has seeded action and driven progress. It draws on a wealth of local experience and enthusiasm to share resources, presenting the work, lives and times of its users.
Registered users can link to the local network for free, post on public forums, exchange information, take up co-op membership and subscribe for unlimited roaming internet access.
BOUNDLESS had made its start in an area with a rich mix of community, cultual centres and educational institutions, a diverse population with a rich cultural heritage at a moment of great transformation in the name of regeneration.
You are welcome to join in the collaborative process of learning and development now underway, so if you are interested in getting involved or would like to establish boundless network nodes in your area please get in touch.~
This page will be continuously updated with new nodes that are created and established. Stay tuned for updates.
