Current Status


June 2017 Update

Thank you for viewing our website! As of 2012, LCL (London Creative Labs) is dormant as a project, due to it’s successful completion in the community of Brixton, London. We hope you find this website useful as inspiration for your own projects. LCL attained its’ goals in reaching and engaging our target audience, and proving our hypothesis, as attested to by the testimonials we have received, and by the independent audit from The Office for Public Management. We proved that it is possible to engage more people in the local economy and also that when provided with the proper assurance in peer counseling and career planning, underdeveloped communities are capable of creative and expressive attributes that allowed them to flourish, and little by little, turn their dreams into reality. Please feel free to browse the outputs, borrow, copy, or build on the idea and share it with whomever you think would benefit. We have left as much as possible online, to this end. The founder of LCL is currently working on projects that engage the wider London community. If you are interested in hearing more and/or participating please contact


April 2014 Update

LCL (London Creative Labs) was first of all an enquiry, then a vision, and we are proud to say that it now stands as tested core concept. We had a hypothesis, put it to the test. It worked, and we now have proof of concept. It is our wish that the core findings will be helpful to other projects around the world. You can see them summarised in our Social Impact Section.

Often, a good answer to a question, is yet another question. In following our curiosity with London Creative Labs, as to how we can create more participatory systems, a new enquiry emerged, about what it takes to facilitate change in areas that can seem unyieldingly stuck within individuals. As founders of LCL, we sensed the call and a duty to follow this enquiry in the form of a new venture. The new venture takes us a level deeper into what it takes to facilitate change at the toughest level of human experience.The resources that were developed along the way during the journey of LCL will gradually be put into the public domain.

Startup Brixton! is a programme designed & delivered by London Creative Labs that ran in Brixton in 2011-2012. Combined with our various products and services below, we were able to empower the neighbourhood of Brixton through unique ways of engagement, as described in our 2 minute video.


We are committed to ensuring decent work for everyone with our
three-level approach

  • Creating the jobs and kind of work that we would want our children to have
  • Discovering better business/other models to generate the jobs and work
  • Helping more people participate in the process



This is achieved with our Products and Services:

Skills Camps — Where Career Coaches Are Discovered

Social Startup Labs — Where Startups Are Born

Social Startup Incubator — Where Startups Grow Wings
