a space for creativity, production & community


The Exchange was set up…

…by local residents interested in providing a future for Erith’s Old Library; a future that was embedded in community, and which celebrated the building’s heritage for local skills of production and as a space for conversation and gathering.

We opened in February 2019 after a first phase of building works, funded by the Greater London Authority and London Borough of Bexley. The Exchange is now fundraising for a second phase of works that will bring the entire building back into active use.

If you are interested in supporting us achieve our goals for the building, the community and for creative production, please get in touch.
