Campus

Social Streets Campus Bow will be opening in September 2017. From here we will be publishing our high street title RomanRoadLDN.

Social Streets Campus is a space for high street innovation. Here, you will find our editorial floor from where we publish our online high street titles, our research station, our training base, and a programme of social events that connect the local community with digital expertise.

 

Social Streets Editorial

Social Streets is a social enterprise. We believe in a new way of doing business, one where social conscience is embedded in the business model (and not just an afterthought).

Our editorial team is a collective of brilliant local digital professionals united in their desire for social action. They receive free work space in exchange for contributing one day per week to the community.

It is a simple exchange model that supports local talent as well as the local community. The high street and local community benefit from the promotion of their high street; and our collective of professionals receive valuable experience of a full-scale editorial floor, join a supportive community of like-minded people, including access to our jobs board.

To join our editorial team you will need to:

- an experienced content creator
- demonstrate a love for community and social issues
- have great ideas about local journalism
