Community involvement[edit | edit source]

In 2009 Bold Vision was established as a social enterprise with the aim of strengthening community in the area (of Telegraph Hill). Bold Vision's first project was building the Hill Station - a cafe, community gathering point, learning centre and performance / exhibition space between the two halves of Telegraph Hill Park in the undercroft of Telegraph Hill Centre. Bold Vision was supported by Telegraph Hill Centre who leased the space on a peppercorn rent, acting as an incubator to channel seed funding for the new venture in addition to making a financial contribution. Bold Vision's other projects include Common Growth, a food growing project and acting as an incubator to enable the campaign to save New Cross Public Library. [1]
